Influenza spreads in the county

Schuyler County--Flu season has arrived in Schuyler County with over 20 confirmed cases reported so far.
People with the flu will often experience a fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle and body aches, headaches, and fatigue. Typically, the flu does not cause stomach problems like nausea or vomiting. Influenza can be dangerous for anyone but is most dangerous for children, pregnant women, the elderly, and community members with weakened immune systems. Flu can lead to dangerous, and sometimes fatal, health problems, especially in pregnant women and people with chronic medical conditions like diabetes and asthma. By getting your flu shot, you are protecting yourself, your loved ones and your community. "This year's flu shot seems to be a very good match for the cases we are seeing," said Marcia Kasprzyk, director of Schuyler County Public Health.
The best ways to protect yourself and others from the flu are to:
• Make sure you and your loved ones get your flu shot every year.
• Wash your hands often and avoid touching your face.
• Avoid contact with anyone who is sick and stay home when you are sick.
• Drink plenty of fluids, get plenty of sleep, and eat nutritious food.
