Every single time you turn on the television lately it seems like the top story is about the massive flu outbreaks happening nationwide.

We keep hearing how important hand washing is to help keep you from becoming infected. But what I’m wondering is why are we not hearing more 'stay home if you're infected' messages?

Yes, hand washing is important, but here’s the thing: When people who have the flu and know they have it continue to go to the store or out to eat or take their sick kids to school, all the hand washing in the world isn’t going to keep this stain of the flu from spreading.

So please, if you have a fever, cough, and feel like hammered poo, for the love of all that is holy, please stay home.
