As you can see in this week's report, the amount of flu-like illness in the state has been downgraded from "Widespread" to "Regional" activity. While this is certainly encouraging news, there's no way to tell if we'll see another wave of illness later this flu season. But with flu currently on the decline and more doses available every week, now is an excellent window of opportunity for all residents to get the vaccine as soon as it is available to you. In the meantime, please continue to practice good health hygiene. This includes coughing or sneezing into a tissue or into your elbow instead of into your hand, and washing your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, especially after you cough or sneeze

We encourage all residents to utilize the comments section on this blog to engage with us and each other. While we cannot respond to every comment or question directly, we find them very helpful to understand your questions and concerns and plan for future posts.
