BROOKLYN - City schools and hospitals are preparing how they will deal with a predicted fall return of the H1N1 virus, or swine flu.

"Hopefully [schools] can sum up what they are going to do," says resident Sabrina Morris. "[They] can't keep closing schools. What are they going to do? There has to be a plan."

In a statement, the city says its schools won't recommend a widespread or prolonged school closure due to "the disease has been mild in nearly all children" and any closure wouldn't stop the spread of H1N1.
