Several recent fatalities caused by the H1N1 virus have some people even more concerned about getting the swine flu.

Some churches are even beginning to take measures to help keep congregations safe.

Pastor Diann O'Bryant at Gilman United Methodist Church says bottles of hand sanitizer are in every classroom and spread all throughout the church.

Custodians are even taking the extra step of wiping down door handles and other objects before each service.

"There's no reason for someone to be sick when they don't have to be. We need to keep everyone healthy," O'Bryant said.

Pastor O'Bryant says the congregation hasn't expressed a lot of concern about the swine flu, but the church is still taking precautions.
