Four Hospitalized Due To Flu In FDL County

Fond du Lac County got off to an early start with the flu this past month. Cases have been reported and there have been hospitalizations. Four people have been hospitalized because of the flu and all four were elderly. Joyce Mann is a public health nurse supervisor with the County’s Health Department. She says the best defense against the flu is still getting a flu shot and it is not too late for that. There are other steps you can take to try and ward it off. Eating well, getting plenty of fluids, resting and avoiding others with the flu are things you can put in practice. If you do get the flu staying home from work to avoid spreading the disease is also considered helpful. If you have the flu you will experience fever, aches, chills, and a cough.
