ST. LOUIS COUNTY - Feeling feverish? Sore throat? It's going around.

St. Anthony's Medical Center says all four of their urgent cares have seen a spike in strep throat. Doctors say the weather may be part of the problem.

With all the snow the last several weeks, people are staying inside. Doctors say close quarters often means more germs.

"We're seeing it every day, positive strep cases. We run that rapid strep and were seeing it every day. The number of cases may vary, I think we've had three to four here today," said Evelyn Young.

Doctors say hand washing and not sharing cups or utensils are the best way to stay healthy.
