REGINA - The number of people isolated with flu-like symptoms at the RCMP's training academy is on the rise.
Roger Brown, the commanding officer of Depot Division in Regina, says there are now 22 cadets in isolation, all with mild cases of the flu.
On Thursday, RCMP announced three confirmed cases of H1N1 at the academy and said an additional 14 cadets with flu-like symptoms were being isolated in a temporary medical triage and treatment centre.
Brown says living areas are being sanitized and about 800 cadets are being asked not to leave the training depot.
Training activities are continuing, but access to the RCMP Academy is restricted and non-training activities have been postponed.
Brown says it was "inevitable" that H1N1 would surface at the training academy given that there are more than 200 confirmed cases in Saskatchewan.
