        Hi ladies this flu is serious and is spreading my wedding is not until june so i am not worrying about it too much yet but the flu has spread into many mexican states already so it is not only in the df (mexico city). There hav been cases reported as far as baja california, san luis potosi, veracruz, oaxaca, and mexico city. I have family in guanajuato which s in central mexico only 12hrs from the texas border and they are taking extra precautions. There was a public health emergency declared in the u.s today so this thing is spreading and fast. Not to scare anyone but you girls traveling down the in the next couple of weeks should take serious precautions on coming inot contact with anyone who looks like they have the symptoms.

              I just saw a news conference with Governor Patterson. Those 8 NY cases were not a result of the swine flu but a really bad cold. They are also recovering.

              Hopefully that offers some reassurance.

                My wedding is not until Sept but I wouldn't be worried about it. It seems to be the worst in crowded cities and not affecting the resorts. Just be smart and hygenic!!!

                  They are sending samples to CDC to actually determine if people have swine flu or just sick. The CDC confirms that those 8 do have the swine flu but a mild case and just have a bad cold. Some of them have even recovered already:

                    FML.... Does anyone know if it has spread to other islands or just Mexico? Our flight stops in cancun before carrying on to Cuba.. Do u think that is an issue?

                      I don't think so. They are trying their best to have workers in the airports stay home if they are even feeling a little sick. I would just stay away from anyone coughing or sneezing. Wash your hands and use purell and you'll be fine.
