H1N1 Influenza ("Swine Flu")
The Maine Department of Education is in close communication with the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Maine CDC) on the status of identified swine flu first reported nationally on April 26, 2009. Nancy Dube, our school nurse consultant, is in frequent contact with school nurses throughout the state and will continue to update them with any information they need to ensure the health and safety of students and the school community.
We will continue to correspond with school nurses and other school officials to share information as it develops. Information is developing quickly. We will make some updates to this website, but the best sources for up-to-date information will be the Maine CDC and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (links below).
Superintendents and school nurses are encouraged to contact the Department with questions. Parents and community members should first contact their schools, school nurse, and the Maine CDC toll-free hotline (see below) for informationfor the best information relevant to them and their children.
