There is a rumor running around town that there has been a confirmed case of swine flu in Alpine. This is a rumor and not true!!!
I have personally contacted:
- Texas Department of Health Services
- Big Bend Regional Medical Center
They have no reported or confirmed cases of Swine Flu. This rumor is just caused by people’s anxiety. Both of these institutions have a duty to warn people about possible health threats. There are no conspiracies! There are no confirmed cases of Swine Flu at this moment!
West Texas Weekly will immediately report on confirmed cases when they happen. Stay tuned!
