Emergency Room Should Be Last Resort For Those With Mild Flu Symptoms

Many people suffering from the flu are turning to emergency rooms for help. Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller feels that isn’t necessary. She urges people to ride it out if their symptoms are not that severe. She recommends getting plenty of rest and drinking plenty of fluids while getting through the flu. She says options include visiting your primary care physician or an urgent care clinic, but emergency rooms are busy enough without the added traffic of people with mild flu symptoms.
