FILE - In this Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013 file photo, Damien Dancy puts masks on his children Damaya, 3, left, and Damien, 7, at Sentara Princess Anne Hospital in Virginia Beach, Va., as hospitals in Hampton Roads are urging patients and visitors to wear a mask at their facilities to help stop the spread of the flu. Health officials say nine more deaths of children from the flu have been reported, bringing the total this flu season to 29. In a typical season, about 100 children die of the flu, so it is not known whether this year will be better or worse than usual. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says half of confirmed flu cases so far are in people 65 and older. (AP Photo/The Virginian-Pilot, Stephen M. Katz, File)
