Officials with the Hawkins County School District are discussing recommendations from Ballad Health regarding the flu in the region.
A social media post layed out information they gained from Ballad from a webinar on what the health care system is experiencing and recommending.

A recommendation from Ballad includes not closing schools, but requesting school personnel to encourage students to continue practicing good hygiene.
