Tulsa, Oklahoma – Tulsa health experts say Northeastern Oklahoma is ready to deal with any flu emergency. Tulsa City/County Health Department Director Gary Cox says the department, health care providers and EMSA are carefully monitoring the outbreak of the Swine Flu in the United States. Cox says no positive cases of the flu have been found in Tulsa, however, confirmed cases have been reported in Texas and in Kansas. His best advice is to wash your hand frequently and if you feel ill do not go to work or school.
