Fargo Cass Public Health received a $22,000 grant from the Dakota Medical Foundation to aid in flu prevention efforts in the region.

The money will be used for a flu prevention media campaign and to distribute hand sanitizers to 175 school buildings in 22 North Dakota counties, according to the statement.

DMF President Pat Traynor said more than 48,000 North Dakota students will have access to the hand sanitizers, in an effort to prevent the spread of the flu.

Fargo Cass Public Health and the Clay County Health Department are leading the Community Influenza Collaborative in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
