Swine Flu Concerns

We've noticed that a lot of you are writing in about swine flu, which shows how concerned you are.  There's no question that it's spreading fast, but as you saw on Monday's show, there are some steps you can take to stay safer: 

-Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze

-Keep your hands clean by washing or sanitizing them

-Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

Many people who've gotten this virus have already recovered from it, like you recover from the regular flu.  But if you notice any symptoms like a fever, chills, exhaustion or achiness, be sure to go to the doctor.

And if you'd like to share your thoughts on this disease, feel free to comment right here.
