DENSE FOG ADVISORY

Until 10 AM

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana issues a DENSE FOG ADVISORY for St. Joe and Branch counties until 10 AM.  Dense fog has already been observed in many cities in West Michigan including Kalamazoo.  The ADVISORY may be expanded to include more counties.  Burning off fog this time of year is tough thanks to a low sun angle.  Fog may linger in some locations until midday.

Study shows fist bumps spread fewer germs than handshakes

Updated: Monday, July 28, 2014

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) – It’s certainly more hip, and it just might be healthier. According to British researchers, a fist-bump spreads fewer germs than a handshake.

A new study in the American Journal of Infection Control found that handshakes spread twice the amount of bacteria as fist bumps.

In fact, doctors and nurses at a hospital in Dallas, Texas are now greeting patients with fist bumps just to be safe.

As many as 75,000 patients with hospital acquired infections die each year in the United States.

Some people are even pushing for a handshake ban at hospitals.
