Swine Flu & the Mass Print

Just back from Anchorage.

And thought I would ask:

Anyone here hear an announcement at Mass regarding swine flu?

In Anchorage, letter from the Archbishop was read, asking that we not shake hands at the Passing of the Peace or hold hands during the "Our Father". Offering communion only in the form of bread was made optional (the parish I was at did offer the cup).

I understand that something similar was announced in the diocese of Colorado Springs as well.

What is happening regarding swine flu in your diocese or parish?
