With thousands all across the country coming down with the flu, many people that work in public places are taking extra steps to make sure the virus doesn't spread. One of the places hit hardest are hotels.
Hotel workers are doing a lot of the same things you and i would do to avoid the flu. They're making sure all areas are disinfected, and also simple things, like having employees frequently wash their hands.
All across the nation, hotel workers are doing all they can to keep people healthy. Some are even stocking up on medicines, extra blankets, and even chicken noodle soup for sick guests.
Locally, hotel managers are trying to stop the spread of the flu by making sure their workers are healthy.
If someone has come down with the virus or feels sick during the day, they encourage them to stay home.
That way, they won't spread the germs to anyone else.
"Well, we always recommend the usual things, making sure your hands are clean, wash your hands. As far as the hotel and the guests, we have a great hotel cleaning staff that cleans the rooms thoroughly every day using the disinfectants in the restrooms and things like that," said Best Western manager, Susan Lefler.
For anyone, the best things to do to avoid the flu is wash your hands and avoid anyone that's sick.
