Health Commissioner says right decision to send home 4-H members

Email

FALCON HEIGHTS -- Minnesota 4-H officials are sending 120 youths home from the State Fair after some came down with the H1N1 swine flu.

Four 4-H members and one staffer early today were confirmed as having the new flu. In all, 14 4-H'ers went home sick, but not all were tested.

About 120 more 4-H members were sent home because they stayed in a fair dormitory with those who became ill.
