Swine Flu Resources

Information regarding the outbreak of swine flu changes quickly, and officials continue to repeat the same message to residents:  don't panic, wash your hands often, cover your mouth when you cough and stay home if you feel sick. 

The CTA is continuing to deep-clean its buses and 'L' cars only once every 14 days -- which means you should definitely wash your hands after public transit.

Chicago residents can get flu updates on AlertChicago.org.

Illinois residents can also go to the state Health Department's site, Ready.Illinois.Gov, or contact their local health department directly.

For nationwide swine flu information, check the CDC's Web site.
