Summer Camp Re-Opens after Swine Flu Outbreak

CROSS LANES, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Things are getting back to normal Monday at a local summer camp in Kanawha County.

Tyler Mountain YMCA in Cross Lanes closed last week after dozens of possible swine flu cases were reported. The camp has already had three confirmed cases.

Health officials say it can take up to four days for the symptoms of the virus to show, so the YMCA decided to close the camp to keep the virus from spreading.

A spokesperson with the YMCA tells WSAZ.com the facility was thoroughly cleaned over the weekend. The campers' parents were also asked on Monday to fill out a questionnaire to make sure their children weren't experiencing any of the virus' symptoms. The "Y" also took the children's temperatures.

John Giroir says attendance appears to be back to normal at the summer camp.
