    Default NZQA staff quarantined over swine flu

    NZQA staff quarantined over swine flu [The swine flu]

    A dozen New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) staff have been quarantined after a colleague contracted swine flu.

    The employee with swine flu worked on level 13 of a central Wellington office building, and was sent home on Friday.

    When the diagnosis was confirmed yesterday afternoon NZQA quarantined a dozen people from level 13.

    The number of confirmed New Zealand cases of swine flu rose to 19 yesterday, with two new confirmed cases being reported by Wellington's Regional Public Health overnight.

    Since then the Canterbury District Health Board has confirmed another case, bringing the number to 20.

    We had a letter home from school last week basically telling us that swine Flu hasn't gone away and that a pendemic is most probably imminent and that we should be prepared for school closure. They have requested email address for all students so work can still be sent home in case of closure. Have any other schools/kindys work places etc had information like this given to them?
