Chippewa Cree Tribe reports case of swine flu
The Chippewa Cree Tribe reported a case of the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu, on the Rocky Boy's Reservation in Montana.

The Rocky Boy Clinic clinic said a male came down with the virus but was not hospitalized. It was the fourth case in the state, all of which have been reported to be mild.

"The Rocky Boy Health Board and Chippewa Cree Tribal Council have an operations plan in place and continue to work in conjunction with local, state and federal authorities," the clinic said in a statement quoted by The Great Falls Tribune.

Only a few cases of the virus have been reported in Indian Country.
