Well, according to what I understand it will be declared a federal emergency. FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security will draw up plans to contain the virus - possible quarantine and even restricting movement to certain States.
The army would be drafted in.

This is exactly what I'm going thru right now...exact same symptoms, and it hit me pretty quick. I just took my temp and it's only 99.6...but I keep getting hot/cold.
I'm glad you are feeling better...I'm in bed right now drinking lots of water..will make some soup later and just hope I get to feeling better quick.

HELENA – State health officials report a probable case of swine flu in Yellowstone County, the first reported case in Montana.
The state Department of Public Health and Human Services says the case involves an adult male who was not hospitalized and is recovering.
The department says a specimen from the individual has been sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta for further testing to confirm H1N1 or swine influenza.
The agency says: "Based on DPHHS test results it's likely this will turn out to be the first H1N1 (swine) influenza case in Montana."

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed that a probable swine flu case reported last week in Minnehaha County is indeed the swine flu, also known as H1N1.
South Dakota Health Department spokeswoman Barb Buhler says the Minnehaha County resident aged 30-39 was not hospitalized and stayed home for seven days as the Health Department had recommended.
The health department does not release other information, including gender or hometown.
The state had reported the person as having a probable case of swine flu last week, and the CDC confirmed it as swine flu.
Officials say a new probable case has been reported in Lincoln County in a child in the 10 & under age group. The child was not hospitalized.
Two previous cases listed as probable - from Minnehaha and Lincoln counties - are at the CDC for testing as well.
So far, there have been 1,484 negative specimens from South Dakota.
