Swine Flu Masks on the way for California Kids
California is taking additional steps to help curb the spread of the Swine flu by distributing 23 million masks and pairs of gloves to school districts.They are intended for roughly 10,000 public schools with about 6.3 million students in more than 1,000 districts.
Students who are suspected of having Swine Flu will be required to wear a mask until a parent or guardian can pick them up from school.
There have been more than 7,200 cases of swine flu reported in California this year, 366 of them fatal, according to the state Department of Public Health.
