Basically it says someone died from it in Happy Valley, and this is a warning accordingly.

The New York Times has reported a second death in Yosemite due to hantavirus--a rodent-borne disease without a cure that proves to be statistically fatal in a third of all cases. Park officials are warning past visitors to America's most popular National Park to be aware of symptoms and aches similar to the flu: fever, aches, dizziness, and chills.
