  Changing weather is bringing a wave of seasonal illness that has impacted some Kentucky schools. Kentucky health officials are encouraging people to take precautions to avoid contagious diseases like the flu, stomach viruses, and strep throat.

 

Several school districts from around Kentucky have closed for a day or two because of high rates of illness among students and staff. Schools in Berea closed for two days last week.
