Flu Hits Kentucky

Ten states report widespread flu activity, which is the highest level described by the Centers for Disease Control.

Kentucky joins 22 other states in the regional activity level, which is the second highest on the CDC scale.

A person is diagnosed with the virus through a flu screen and can be treated with a prescription.

Health officials say hand washing is a great way to help prevent yourself from coming down with the flu.

Health officials say a healthy diet and exercise are also ways to keep a strong immune system.
