Severe flu season taking its toll
According to the Illinois Department of Public Health, Illinois and the rest of the nation are experiencing an earlier flu season than normal, with high numbers of influenza-like illnesses.
DeKalb County has seen increased visits to hospital emergency departments for flu-like illness, according to the DeKalb County Health Department. Public Health Administrator Jane Lux is encouraging residents to get a flu shot to protect themselves and their families for the rest of the flu season.
“Getting a flu shot is the best defense against the flu. It is also important to limit the spread of influenza and other contagious diseases by practicing the 3Cs,” she said.
