VERNON, B.C. — An army cadet training centre in Interior British Columbia has cut back on activities after a cadet came down with swine flu and others reported respiratory problems.
The centre in Vernon, B.C., says in a news release that one of its cadets had a confirmed case of the H1N1 pandemic influenza virus.
Three cadets fell ill just days after summer training had started, and that number has grown to 27.
Eight samples were sent for laboratory testing — one came back positive for the H1N1 virus, another was inconclusive, and six others came back negative.
The centre says all of the cadets are doing well.
The centre is limiting its intake of cadets for the rest of the summer.
