WUVT would like to remind you not to drink and drive. It doesn't matter if you've had one drink or ten, if you are driving a hundred miles or just one. Alcohol impairs your motor coordination, and if you get behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol, you could kill yourself or someone else. So do everyone a favor and make sure you do not drive while under the influence of alcohol.
Every 10 seconds, a person in the United States needs blood. Do your part by giving blood at your local Red Cross Blood Drive. One donation can help save the lives of three human beings in need. You can visit http://www.redcrossblood.org for more information and to find a blood drive near you.

This flu season, WUVT would like to remind you to wash your hands frequently, keep a three-to-six-foot distance from people coughing or sneezing. If you are coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth with your elbow, or better a disposable tissue. Your eyes, nose, and mouth are world heritage sites, so don’t let your hands wander there until after washing. If you have symptoms of dry cough, fever, and difficulty breathing contact your health care provider. U.S. cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) were in the hundreds as of late February. There are already 32 million cases of the flu in the United States with 18,000 deaths. Get your influenza vaccine! Be the stealth weapon against COVID-19!
