AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — The director the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention will hold a briefing Friday on the state’s efforts to prepare for swine flu this fall.

As it stands, there are more than 300 laboratory-confirmed cases of swine flu in Maine, but the actual number is believed to be far higher. The state also has confirmed swine flu at 36 summer camps, some of which received cots from the Maine Emergency Management Agency to isolate sick campers.

Dr. Dora Ann Mills said the experience in summer camps will guide the state’s action as it prepares for school to resume in little more than a month.
