Thursday afternoon, Fairbury Public Schools sent out a text alert noting, "Our district has a confirmed case of Influenza." The alert also stated that an email went out with more details. The email discussed the schools' protocol which includes daily cleaning of classrooms and students areas. Stephen Grizzle concluded the email with, "Also, if they (students) are running a fever, to also stay home until 24 hours has passed without a fever prior to returning to school." In correspondence with school administration Thursday evening, Fairbury Journal-News learned that the Influenza that was confirmed was incorrectly reported. It was not Influenza H, but a bacterial infection. Kate Lange with Public Health Solutions confirmed that H. Influenzae is a bacterial infection. Lange has been in contact with the school about this difference. Grizzle added that the reported case came from a student at Jefferson Intermediate in Fairbury.
