Covering The Swine Flu Scare

2 on the Beat has travelled South to Guadalupe County today to talk to people about   Swine Flu.

As you know, there are three confirmed and eleven suspected cases of  Swine Flu  in the Schertz-Cibolo area, which is near  San Antonio.

The schools are shut down for a week, to give custodians time to disinfect classrooms and change air filters.

When I arrived at the home of   Robin and Patrick Henshaw,  there was a news crew from KSAT TV  (Channel 2’s San Antonio sister station) interviewing them at the doorstep.

Everyone was wearing a face mask.

 The Health Department confirmed that Mr. Henshaw,  his  youngest daughter and son have swine flu.

The Henshaws told me that as a precaution, they offer every visitor to their home a face mask.  They no longer think they are  contagious, but they also insist that everyone clean their hands with Lysol or some other type of disinfectant before leaving the home.  The health department also advised that they stand three feet away from people.

My photographer James Perry and I went inside their home, rather than interview them at the door.

I’ll have the story on KPRC Local 2 News at 5 and 6.
