INDIANAPOLIS. - One of the worst flu seasons in recent memory is happening throughout the country - and it's hitting Hoosiers especially hard.
Dozens of hospitals have restricted visitors and nursing homes and schools across central Indiana have declared flu outbreaks.
But what about avoiding the flu bug when you're on a plane?
Health experts at Caring.com agree, advising airline passengers to clean armrests and tray tables with disinfectant wipes. And avoid touching the seat pocket - there's no telling when it was last cleaned.
It's also a good idea to stay hydrated to keep your immune system healthy, but avoid caffeine and alcohol while on board, as it can dehydrate your system.
