WREG wants to let you know what illnesses are currently going around in schools and communities around the Mid-South. We’ve partnered with Saint Francis and MedPost Urgent Care for the latest information and we want to hear from you, too.


The flu is really going around right now. The latest map from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control shows widespread flu activity all over the country. The only places where the flu isn’t widespread are Oregon, Hawaii and Washington, D.C.

Here in Tennessee, the impact of the flu has been felt heaviest in Memphis and Shelby County.

Thousands of people have been going to the doctor for help.

Our friends at Saint Francis and MedPost Healthcare say they’ve also treated patients for strep, colds, ear infections and a bacterial skin infection called cellulitis.

What’s Going Around where you live?
