Grayville Community Schools are closed through Wednesday after more than 20% of the student population got sick with the flu. Now, parents are making sure their kids or others don't get sick. Pam Rankin works at IGA Supermarket in Grayville. One of her kids caught the flu recently. She's been using a variety of household cleaners at home and at work to prevent anyone else from getting it.
"We've been using hand sanitizers, sanitizing wipes, spraying over everything," she says.
Day care centers are also taking precautions. Terri Garman of Wee Care Day Care says she's closing the center until schools re-open Thursday. She spent Monday cleaning toys, dolls, and other things kids use.
"We do clean the toys on a regular basis, but to prevent the extra germs, we're doing extra cleaning," she says.
County health officials say once schools re-open Thursday, they will take the temperatures of students as a precaution.
