Flu season usually picks up this time of year but for our area, it's especially bad this year. Schools all over are closing their doors to keep the spread of the flu down and to sanitize the entire school. Right now the CDC is saying the East Texas area is leading the nation for the flu with Dallas a close 2nd. But the Shreveport/Bossier area, as well as SW Arkansas, has seen many schools having to be closed as well in recent weeks.

With outbreaks of Measles being reported in the Houston area as well, it's very important if you have a fever to stay home and call your doctor. Don't try and risk going to work or school when you're sick because all you're doing is spreading sickness and making it worse for you as well.
