Doctors Have Warned That Flu Season In Alaska Has Started Early With A Unique Strain

Flu season in Alaska arrived early this year at Thanksgiving, and it’s still going strong. A strain not usually seen this early in the season is making its rounds, and Alaskans of all ages are getting sick. Kids have been getting hit the hardest however, and there’s been a large spike in school absences in the past month, making the holiday season a little bit slower for everyone!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
