H1N1 flu will be with us during the 2009-10 school year. The Virginia Department of Health has affirmed that this flu strain has spread throughout all regions of Virginia over the last several months, and has particulary affected children and teens. While its prevalence is widespread, the flu has generally not been severe to date. This website will serve as a clearinghouse of information for Bath County Public Schools parents, students and staff as we do what we can to prevent the spread of the flu and to manage outbreaks as they may occur. If you have further questions about pandemic flu in general, please consult with your healthcare provider or the Bath County Health Department. Please contact your school principal if you need more information about how pandemic flu may affect students in Bath County Public Schools.
