An elementary school in Washington, New Hampshire has shut down after several people tested positive for the flu. WMUR reports school officials are saying the school shut down Monday and will be closed today because most staff members are sick.

Several students also reported being ill.

School officials are reminding everyone to use good hand-washing hygiene, and state health officials urged Granite Staters to get vaccinated.

Health officials say the number of flu cases in New Hampshire is low, but they anticipate it will go up over the next several weeks.
