This just in: A company-wide e-mail to Conde Nast employees went out this morning with the news that someone on the 12th floor of 4 Times Square had come back with a postive result for Influenza A (apparently Swine Flu is categorized as an "A" flu - betcha didn't know that!). And what imperious fashion magazine is situated on the 12th floor? That's right. Vogue.

We were recently notified by an employee working on the 12th floor at 4 Times Square that a doctor confirmed a positive test outcome for Influenza A (according to CDC, the H1N1 virus is a sub-type of Influenza A). This employee also confirms being under a doctor¹s care and currently recovering at home.
In line with CDC recommendations, please monitor any flu-like symptoms should they arise and check with your healthcare provider about any special care that may be required should you be pregnant or have a chronic health condition such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma, or emphysema.
