Health district: Flu season over


The 2015-16 influenza season is past, according the Grand County Health District, but people are cautioned to get their flu shots when they are available for the next flu season.

Health Officer Dr. Alexander Brzezny said this week that reports of flu have settled down in numbers to the pre-epidemic level.

During the influenza season, Grant County Health District received notification of 396 positive influenza lab reports.

Brzezny stated that it isn’t uncommon for the flu season to last until mid-May. GCHD has only received one positive influenza case since the middle of May.

Residents are urged to get their 2016-17 flu shot as soon as they become available through healthcare providers or pharmacies.
