8 different school districts in SW Oklahoma are closing due to the flu. The largest is Lawton, which is approximately 100,000 population. There is 3 high schools, 4 middle schools and 20+ grade schools. The resto of the districts are smaller districts all surrounding the Lawton area. This is close to where I live.

WOW, that is a lot of kids out of school. I hope we do not get hit that hard! We are not seeing that much flu, lots of strep, stomach virus, and upper respiratory virus. Hope it gets better for your state.
Always Be Prepared

The next morning about 10 more districts were added to the closed list. It's pretty bad here. We have been trying to stay home on the weekend, away from people. Just mainly going to work, will run to the store on my lunch hour, but I'm taking a late lunch and so far when I have been going there have only been 1 or 2 other people in the stores. I have been trying to pick stores I know will have less people, NOT Walmart, lol.
