ASU students stay clear of the flu

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The flu has become a nationwide problem and for some college students they're hoping to have nothing to do with it.

"I try to keep like a small container of germ x with me so I'll just use that on my hands and if I go to the café I'll use the dispensers they have," said ASU student, Desiree Fowler.

For many college students, when your room is shared with someone else, you're dealing with double the germs and the chance of catching the flu.

"Back in my dorm I make sure that I have those Lysol wipes and I wipe everything down," said Fowler.

Fowler said that what a lot of people don't think to clean are their cell phones. She makes sure to clean hers often.

"I have an iPhone so I make sure I wipe that down too cause I know I'm constantly touching that," said Fowler.

For Rugby player, Jamelle Shaw, remembering his mom's advice is key from catching any sickness.

"One of the things I'm doing is you know you hear your mom always tell you keep your fingers away from your mouth," said Shaw.

After being around his teammates he makes sure to go straight for soap and water. He said washing his hands helps keep him from getting sick.

"After practice I make sure I clean my hands," Shaw said.
