I agree. Recently several larger schools in Arkansas were closed because of the "stomach flu". It made a very small "filler" in the newspaper.

If this had happened on a cruise ship it would have been on the second or third page of our paper (or even the first, if it was a "slow" news day), with pictures of the "sick" passengers disembarking!

We have a lot of small towns here with fewer residents than even the smallest mainline cruise ships. It's not news when they close the schools , but it would have been if it happened on a cruise ship.

I think they should put the hand wash in all schools, hospitals and stores. The grocery store I go to most often did have the hand wash available for a short time last year, but then it disappeared .
