The Brookline Department of Public Health today announced that there are three confirmed cases of the 2009 H1N1 flu (swine flu) in Brookline residents. Two cases are students at Baker School, one case is a student at Brookline High. All students have been excluded from school and are recovering at home. The Department announced that Brookline will follow the most recent federal and state guidelines which recommend that the best way to reduce the spread of flu is to focus on early identification of illness, not to close schools or cancel public events.
