Dr. Carolyn Stern from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Henrietta is seeing upset stomachs and pink eye.

Dr. Stern said as kids go back to school, it's time for an important reminder about washing your hands. She said to make sure you wash thoroughly for at least 20 seconds and to try to use a towel or your elbow to turn off the faucet when finished.

Patients can also use hand sanitzer if necessary; just be sure to cover your entire hand, including under the fingernails.
