Editorial: Vigilance against swine flu

Buffalo Teachers Federation President Phil Rumore is pushing hard for more stringent precautions against the spread of swine flu when the opening of the school year brings children -- who are especially vulnerable to the H1N1 virus strain -- back into close proximity in the confines of classrooms and school buses.

Rumore doesn't think the city school district is doing enough. The district counters that it's distributing hand sanitizers, is updating its policies to follow new CDC giuidance, and has hired a physician to oversee and monitor its efforts.

Overkill, or not enough?
