INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): 12 cases of variant influence A have been detected in Indiana. State heath officials are continuing to encourage everyone to protect themselves at county and 4H fairs this summer.
At least 10 individuals had exposure to swine at the Grant and Hancock county fairs and one individual had contact with swine at their home farm.
The Indiana State Department of Health and local health departments continue to investigate these cases.
“There’s no reason why Hoosiers shouldn’t enjoy our county and 4H fairs this summer,” said State Health Commissioner William VanNess, M.D. “But now that we know swine influenza is circulating, it’s going to be important to take some extra precautions around the animals.”
