Notre Dame Student With Swine Flu Doing Fine

Last updated on Wednesday, April 29, 2009

(SOUTH BEND) - Health officials are working to contain a confirmed case of swine flu on the campus of Notre Dame.

A student who became sick tested positive for the flu strain. It is the only confirmed case in Indiana so far. University administrators say the student is nearly fully recovered, and is now resting in "voluntary isolation" at home on campus.

Notre Dame Health Services Medical Director Dr. Rebecca Moswinski says the student was treated with typical over-the-counter flu medications, and did not take anti-viral medications because the symptoms never warranted it.

The university is asking anyone with flu-like symptoms not to wait to see a doctor.
