Earlier this week, it was reported that there were six “probable” cases of swine flu in Maryland, but none in DC or Virginia.  Unfortunately, the flu has now extended to all three local jurisdictions, according to the Washington Post.

“Last night, Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) announced that Virginia had its first two confirmed cases as the virus spread through the Washington region,”  states the report.  Maryland officials have announced a few more cases of the flu and has shut down certain schools, including Rickville High School in Montgomery County.  A federal agent, who traveled to Mexico with President Obama, contracted the flu and it spread to his family members. The White has stated that President Obama is safe.

As President Obama advised during his press conference this week, we must all take reasonable precautions to protect ourselves and others from the swine flu.  Washing your hands regularly and properly is an important step.
