WASHINGTON (AP) A bath at a Washington-area West Shore bath house is helping people who wash their hands often clean up.
The store has installed a shower and shower towels, and the soap is available for use.
The water is being stored at the facility’s tap.
It’s the latest in a series of positive measures to try to curb the spread of H1N1 in the U.S. and the Pacific Northwest.

It is especially worrisome in the Midwest, where many people live.
