    Confirmed Cases: 2
    The Tennessee Department of Health has identified an additional probable case of the novel H1N1 virus in WilliamsonCounty. As a result, the state has recommended the dismissal of students from CrockettElementary School for seven days to lessen the chance of transmission of the illness among students. The state s initial case of the virus was identified by the department in WilliamsonCounty on April 29. We will continue to see cases of the virus identified in our state because of expanded testing and surveillance, said State Health Commissioner Susan R. Cooper, MSN, RN. People should continue to take steps to protect their health and the health of their family, co-workers and classmates by washing their hands, covering coughs and sneezes with a sleeve or tissue and staying home when they are sick. The state public health lab identified the additional case last night. Starting this week, the lab will be able to confirm cases of the virus for the state with the use of flu kits provided by federal officials. To date, a total of 15 cases of this strain of flu have been identified through state lab testing. The breakdown is as follows: County CDC Confirmed Cases Probable Cases Davidson 1 9 Knox 0 2 Shelby 0 1 Williamson 1 1 TOTAL 2 13 All Tennessee patients are recovering from the illness and have a good prognosis. The Tennessee Department of Health is working with local public health officials to identify and provide antiviral medication to the patients family and close contacts. Anyone identified as a close contact of a patient will be notified by the Department.
