Sioux Falls Day Care Shut After Flu Finding

May 5, 2009

A Sioux Falls, S.D., day care center has temporarily closed because a child who might have been exposed to the swine flu attends the center.

About 260 children receive care at the YWCA South Childcare Center.

Chief executive officer Laurie Knutson says someone with a probable case of the flu had taken their child to the center.

The center is closed for at least two days. And Knutson says it will be closed for two weeks unless tests for the virus come back negative.

City health officials said the temporary closing is not unexpected and is no cause for alarms.
