Humboldt County public health officials are at this moment confirming Humboldt County's first case of Swine H1N1 flu.
There is no cause for alarm, citizens. According to a press release that was embargoed until the exact millisecond of this item's publication, the victim -- and why did I almost write "suspect"? -- has already recovered. She acquired the exotic illness while traveling out of state, and public health personnel believe she had already passed the stage of contagion by the time she checked herself into the hospital.
More information to come, and as always you can get updates straight from the swine's mouth at humboldthealthalert.org.
