The Allen County Health Department is working with the state and the local fair board to make sure swine flu problems that have hit other parts of the state don't become an issue here.
Cuyahoga County banned hogs at its fair after cases of the virus cropped up in several states including Ohio and Indiana.
The nationwide case count jumped to 158 this week but some are questioning whether the problem is worse than in years past or simply a result of better reporting.
But local health officials are taking a 'better safe than sorry' approach. They say the fair is a safe place to be but you can take some precautions to put your mind at ease.
The Centers for Disease Control says this strain of swine flu does not seem to be unusually dangerous, like a strain found in 2009.
And the CDC says it also appears to be tough to spread from human to human.
The Allen County Health Department has been authorized by the state to conduct testing for the virus should the need arise.
