http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/identifyingpatients.htm

"Objective: This document provides interim guidance for clinicians who might provide care for patients with confirmed novel influenza A (H1N1) or suspected novel influenza A (H1N1) virus infection (previously referred to as swine-origin influenza virus). This document has changed as more ill persons have been identified and more epidemiologic and clinical information has been gathered. CDC recommends that testing be prioritized for those with severe respiratory illness and those at highest risk of complications from influenza, as reflected in this document."
