Gov't reassures schools on staying open with flu

The federal government is advising schools they don't need to close their doors this fall just because a few students come down with swine flu.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Friday that only schools with high numbers of students getting the new flu should consider closing to stem the outbreak.

The decision rests with local school officials, but they are looking to the federal government for advice about the new flu strain that has caused a global epidemic.
