U.S. university closes due to possible swine flu case

Western Oregon University student tests positive for influenza A

Western Oregon University is closed today after a student tested positive for influenza A at the Student Health Center. The campus will remain closed until Monday with a longer closure possible.

Western Oregon University president John Minahan, in a statement released on the university website, announced the cancellation of all activities at the 5,000 student public college. The closure includes the university library and athletic centre.

The university is awaiting test results from the Center for Disease Control prior to deciding if the campus will reopen next week.
