With the flu outbreak continuing to be an issue, most schools in Lincoln County, Tennessee are remaining closed Monday to allow students and staff to get well again.

We spoke with students in Tennessee about what they'll do to keep themselves from getting sick.

"It's kind of scary because I don't really want it, but I was kind of scared I was going to get it," said Raymond Hunt.

Hunt attends a private school in Fayetteville that will still be in session on Monday.

He told WAAY-31 it makes him nervous knowing they're one of the only schools that will remain open while everyone else in the city and Lincoln County will be at home.

He and his classmate told us they're prepared for anything.

"Use hand sanitizer, wash our hands, make sure we're not touching anything weird, drinking Gatorade and Mello Yello," he said.

Fayetteville City Schools and Lincoln County Schools may open again on Tuesday. Both districts were closed on Friday for cleaning.
