Lenoir City student has confirmed case of flu

LENOIR CITY (WATE) -- A boy who's a student in the Lenoir City School System has H1N1 flu, according to Superintendent Wayne Miller.

The health department has told administrators that when the boy's gone 24 hours without a fever, he should be fine and will no longer be contagious.

Miller said health officials suspect the boy's brother also had the flu.

The brothers should return to school Wednesday or Thursday.
