Flu in Newton, Conover, Hickory; Quarantines Against Charlotte, Raleigh, Wilmington, Sept. 30, 1918

“15 Cases Are Reported at Newton,” from the Hickory Daily Record, Sept. 30, 1918

 Dr. Geo. W. Shipp, county health officer, telephoned the Record this afternoon that there were 15 cases of Spanish influenza in Newton, four in Conover and 15 in Hickory and that Newton had quarantined against Charlotte, Raleigh and Wilmington.

Unless the people in these places obey the quarantine regulations and cooperate, it will be necessary to close the schools and other public places, he said.
