Swine flu outbreak at Vogue

We thought all of you Anna and Andre faithfuls would want to know... The swine flu epidemic is continuing its rampage and now even the rich and famous are not safe. In fact, the following memo was sent out to all Conde Nast's employees this past Monday, after one of their own was diagnosed with Influenza A. According to information received from the CDC the H1N1 virus, also known as swine flu, is a sub-type of Influenza A. The Flu advisory however did not specify the name of the victim. It only pointed out that this person worked on the 12th floor of the 4 Times Square building which is the very floor Vogue magazine calls home. From: [Redacted] Date: Mon, 1 Jun 2009 11:56:41 -0400 To: Conde Nast NY - All Conversation: Flu Advisory Subject: Flu Advisory 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 health care 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. For more information about the flu, visit the CDC website at We pray that mother superior, Wintour, is safe and adorned with a fashionable face mask! We cannot help but wonder what her mask of choice would look like. What do you think?

Just a thought...
