Advice for church-goers to avoid spread of flu

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - As the weekend begins, some churches are making pro-active changes in an effort to prevent the spread of the H1-N1 virus or "Swine Flu". 

Some Catholic churches have stopped distributing wine while others are cancelling Mass all together.  Some Methodist churches are ordering individually wrapped communion wafers and many pastors have been advised to not shake hands or hug their congregations this Sunday. 

All of this is from the Centers for Disease Control, which offers this simple guideline to churchgoers:  if you feel sick, don't go and if you do go, wash your hands frequently.
