I read at http://cbs5.com/local/swine.flu.bay.2.996454.htmlthat as of Apr 29, 2009 12:28 am US/Pacific time:
"The Alameda County Public Health Department sent nine nasal swab specimens to the California Department of Public Health for testing, according to Alameda County health department spokeswoman Sherri Willis. She did not know when the test results would be available."
But the article also mentioned advice from Dr. Susan Fernyak, San Francisco's director of communicable disease control and prevention
"[Dr. Susan Fernyak] said those with normal flu-like symptoms should recuperate at home and that testing was not necessary."
"We really want people to treat this as the normal flu," she said.
Again the State has been blessed with more than one city of that name. The Alameda in Alameda County is only 15 miles from San Francisco while the Alameda California in Kern County is 290 miles away.
