Monterey County resident dies from flu

An Asheville hospital has implemented its visitor limitation policy after an increase in flu-like activity. Experts believe peak flu season could come as early as next week.

A visit to the emergency room could lead to exposure from other flu patients or other contagious diseases.

This means four designated visitors throughout the entire hospital stay, not simply four at a time.

If you are sick, stay home from work or school until you have been symptom-free for 24 hours. Limiting visitors to hospital birthing centers and pediatric units reduces the potential for exposure for this vulnerable population. "While vaccination offers the best protection we have against influenza, it's still possible that some people may become ill despite being vaccinated but their illness will be much milder".

In Montrose, California, physician assistant Jennifer DeMoss said the flu season has been "crazy so far". More and more people are getting sick, but the state of IL says there's still time to get a flu shot. Those who were vaccinated and still get the flu are "less likely to have the complications of pneumonia, having to be hospitalized and dying", said Schaffner.
