Worry About Costumes, Not Flu

Rather than worry about the swine flu this weekend, most in the area are worried about what they'll where for a Halloween Costume. State Epidemiologist Patsy Kelso tells WCAX TV that people should go out on Saturday night.

"We're not at all recommending that people stay indoors or stay away from others."

Parents say they're not worried. They'll keep their kids safe from the flu just like they keep them safe from ghosts and goblins. But Kelso says but if you do feel flu symptoms, turn your porch light off to detract from Trick or Treaters and do stay inside.
