Virginia hospital visitors were urged by health care advocates Wednesday to wear masks in an effort to protect against a widespread and severe outbreak of flu rapidly spreading across the country.
Dr. Parente said her office doesn't normally see big flu numbers until late January or early February, but this year's uptick has prompted doctors at the practice to host a flu clinic, where children can get a flu vaccine without an appointment.
Dr. Kathleen Parente of Pediatric Associates of Alexandria said her office has seen "a lot" of patients with symptoms.
