Camp closes early due to swine flu

OVID—The outbreak of flu like symptoms that closed Camp Onseyawa a week early had at least seven confirmed cases of H1N1 influenza (swine flu).
Vickie Swinehart, director of public health in Seneca County, said as of Monday, Aug. 31, that was the number of confirmed cases.  She added that not all camp cases that tested positive of influenza A will be tested for swine flu.
Camp Onseyawa is a two week camp for children, age nine to 16 with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities.  It is supported by Rotary Clubs in Yates, Ontario, Seneca, and Wayne Counties.  Camp Onseyawa uses the facilities of Boy Scout camp, Babcock-Hovey.
Sandy Ottley, camp director, said during the first week of camp (Aug. 17 to 21), counselors and campers showed flu like symptoms.  She decided then to cancel the second week of camp that would have started Aug. 23.
“So many were coming down (with it),” she said.
