Swine flu confirmed at Texas Jewish camps

(JTA) — Two Jewish camps in Texas have had confirmed cases of swine flu.

Camp Young Judaea and the Greene Family Camp, both overnight summer camps, will remain open, according to the Jewish Herald-Voice in Houston.

Camp Young Judaea had eight cases, including campers and staff, as well as 25 campers and two counselors quarantined with flu symptoms. The Greene Family Camp had one confirmed swine flu case and four campers with symptoms.  

Camp Newman-Swig in Santa Rosa, Calif., which last week delayed its start after several staff members came down with the virus, canceled five four-day sessions. Three other sessions are scheduled to begin Thursday, as planned.
