From the Memphis and Shelby County Health Department: Officials with the Memphis and Shelby County Health Department are working closely with the Tennessee Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control in monitoring confirmed swine influenza cases. As of today's date (April 27th), no cases of swine influenza have been reported in Shelby County or in the state of Tennessee.

"While Shelby County has not reported a swine influenza case, we want everyone to be in full prevention mode," said Shelby County Mayor A C Wharton, "This means following good hygiene practices to include the simple task of repeatedly washing your hands and if you are feeling sick with flu-like symptoms, stay at home."
