The flu has been making its way around the area, and it has now caused a postponement of two basketball games.

Roosevelt and Aberdeen Central were scheduled for a home-and-home on Friday night. The boys were scheduled to play in Aberdeen, while the girls in Sioux Falls. As a precaution with a few Aberdeen Central players sick, the boys game has been rescheduled to February 12, 2015 and the girls on February 13, 2015. The games will remain at the same venues.

According to the South Dakota Department of Health, there are 480 reported cases of the flu and South Dakota is in the moderate severity category.
