(KCEN) -- If you've been sick with the flu, you're not alone.
That's because this year's flu season is bad, the worst in more than a decade.
In some cases, more patients are showing up at hospitals than they can treat.
Emergency departments are becoming overwhelmed, so some are treating the overflow in outdoor tents.
The Center for Disease Control is concerned and is advising people that droplets from a sneeze or a cough can be anywhere.
The CDC recommends washing your hands frequently and keeping your hands away from your eyes and nose.
The worst part is outbreak has yet to reach its peak.
