It looks like the flu has struck again. And Ohio County schools are bearing the brunt of it this time around.

We've just received word that Ohio County schools are closed for the rest of this week due to the flu.

We first about widespread flu activity in Kentucky back in January.

At the time, WLKY-Lexington was reporting flu outbreaks in half the state with 1,457 case being reported.

While it's been relatively quiet for most of February, this closure is among lengthiest we've seen regarding the flu.

The Ohio County Monitor says that Ohio County schools will reopen next Monday, March 4th.
