Just in: teen is Norwood’s first case of H1N1

Health Commissioner Pamela Walker-Bauer sent us the following email to share with our readers:

Yesterday, we received our first lab confirmed case of H1N1 in Norwood. Due to HIPPA, I can't disclose too much, but I can tell you, it was a teenage male who was treated with antivirals and is doing well. So if there was any question that H1N1 is in the community, there should be no doubt now.
