    A Pfizer employee at a Groton location has come down with swine flu.

    A resident of Westerly, RI, who works at Pfizer’s King’s Heights facility in Groton, has tested positive for swine flu, according to a company spokeswoman.

    He is recovering at home and several co-workers, “who are not exhibiting any symptoms at this time,” said the company, are recovering at home.  About 60 people work at the same building.  This facility is two miles away from the larger Groton campus of Pfizer.

    The man has not been back to work since Monday, April 27, and will not return until after a medical evaluation.

    The King’s Heights facility was thoroughly cleaned Sunday night.
