ORIGINAL REPORT:

FLAGSTAFF -- A 19-year-old student from Northern Arizona University has a "probable case" of swine flu.

NAU and the Coconino County Health Department are waiting for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to confirm it.

Janitors have cleaned and disinfected dorms and public dining areas and those with flu-like symptoms have been given masks.

But the campus is operating as usual, especially with finals and graduation right around the corner.

Students or parents can call a 24-hour phone bank for more information. That number is 928-523-0007.
