Swine flu reported at Oglala Sioux Tribe school


The Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota is urging people who are sick to stay home in order to stop the spread of the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu.

The tribe reacted after a teacher and several second-grade students at the Loneman Day School were diagnosed with the virus. The cases appear to be the first on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

The Rapid City Journal did not say whether the school was closed.
