TRUSSVILLE, AL (WBRC) - Trussville's Rococo Hair Design has been around since 1993. Recently, a sign went up on the door, warning customers to stay way with flu like symptoms. "Stay at home, reschedule if you are sick. So they are not contributing to the spread of swine flu." says Janice Catoe, Rococo's owner.
So far none of Catoe's employees have come down with swine flu symptoms and she wants to keep it that way."We felt like for us and our customers this was the thing to do." says Catoe.
On Tuesday, a State Health Officer announced the H1N1 virus continues to spread quickly across the state. "Over last week, we have seen a spreading of H1N1 at schools across the state. Earlier it was confined geographically to south Alabama, now we are seeing this more widespread." says Williamson.
State School Superintendent Joe Morton says with the start of school the swine flu is spreading quickly on college and school campuses. Morton says absences are up to 7% of all school age students. "Some school districts have more absences than others but the absences are growing." says Morton.
