COVID, Flu Spiking After Thanksgiving

COVID and flu are back on the rise after the Thanksgiving holiday. 


On the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday, Warner Hospital CEO Paul Skowron told Regional Radio the Monday after the holiday weekend, there was a line at the Family Medicine and emergency room for people with flu-like symptoms.



According to Skowron, there is COVID fatigue taking place and the public is getting behind in the COVID booster schedule.



Skowron has a couple of recommendations to help keep the flu at bay this cold and flu season. He recommends washing hands frequently and drinking plenty of water.



If you plan to visit the hospital, masking is required because the County has reached a certain threshold in the COVID mitigations set by the CDC.
