There's one Sundance freebie nobody wants: The flu.
"We know that one of the best ways to prevent the flu is frequent hand sanitizing, so we will be giving out free bottles of hand sanitizers to some of the hotels, restaurants and transportation companies," hospital CEO Rob Allen said. "If people slip these into their pockets or purses and use them to clean their hands, it really will help them to stay healthy and enjoy the film festival."
The hospital recommends that people bring their own hand sanitizer if they can, as supplies could run low.
The notion of the flu working its way through the Sundance attendees has been making the rounds. There's even a Twitter account for @SundanceFlu.
