Flu Season Peaking
It’s a bit later than usual, but flu season is peaking in the region. McKenna Carter of the Hood River County Health Department says more people are visiting emergency rooms with flu symptoms than earlier in the winter. She adds it is not too late to get a flu shot if you haven’t done so. Carter pointed out that even though flu season is peaking a bit late this year, it is not uncommon for that to happen, as flu season took a similar pattern in 2016.
