CLEVELAND – Flu season is getting into full swing across the country, and some areas are getting harder hit than others – even in northern Ohio.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention listed Ohio among more than 20 states in the highest category for activity level of influenza-like illness, as of the last week in December.

Neighboring states of Pennsylvania, Indiana and Michigan are also in the highest category – all colored in red on CDC’s map.
