Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when you cough or sneeze. Wash your hands frequently. If you are sick, stay home from work or school. These are some of the common-sense reminders from Dr. Dora Anne Mills, director of the Maine Center for Disease Control, after three cases of the H1N1 swine flu were confirmed in Maine today. Two cases are in Kennebec County and the third is in York. The state has ordered the maximum $2.175 million of antiviral medication, should the flu spread.
