This years flu season is worse than it's been in many years and only appears to be getting worse. KSLA reports that it is now as bad as the 2009 swine flu outbreak! With many schools in our area closing down because of the flu over the past several weeks the sad fact is that it's not getting better. People are avoiding crowded areas and staying home this year as flu paranoia grows.

If you're feeling ill or have a temperature experts are saying you should call your Dr before doing anything including just going to a clinic. In the past it's normal to see flu spikes regionally around the country but this year for some reason it seems to be hitting everyone at once. Do not try and tough it out if you think you might be getting sick, because all you're doing is helping spread the flu.
