MIDLAND - Swine flu finally makes its way into Midland County.

Officials confirmed the first case on Thursday but say, it's probably not the only one.

The swine flu is no longer considered a reportable communicable disease, so doctors don't have to report everyone.

Officials say there's no need for alarm.

Just continue to practice good hygiene, like washing your hands and covering your mouth if you cough, and make sure you and your kids stay home if you feel sick.
