The flu bug is still sticking around and many area schools have cancelled classes. Frequent hand washing is the best way to prevent illness. Get plenty of sleep and drink a lot of liquids to prevent dehydration. Chicken noodle soup is a good food to have in the pantry. Healthy tips to follow: avoid contact with those who are sick, shaking hands, touching doors, remote controls, computers or phones that you share. Lysol and sanitizing wipes are good friends to help prevent spreading illness.
