LOCAL NEWS-
It’s that time of the year.  Winter is here and so is cold and flu season. The cold/flu season runs from October through May. Influenza is an infectious disease that affects hundreds of thousands of people a year. Nan Widseth, Polk County Public Health Disease Prevention and Control Coordinator, said that certain individuals are more at risk. “Usually the young and the old are the ones that are more at risk. Also people who have medical conditions with suppressed immunity are at a higher risk.” According to the Minnesota Department of Health, which offers weekly reports on statistics about influenza, there has been sporadic spread of the flu in the state this year as of their latest report. The Center for Disease Control noted that it’s impossible to predict what the flu season will be like each year.   How do you know if you might have the flu? “Fever, cough and weakness are the main things to look for. It increases in severity,” Widseth notes. “You usually will notice some respiratory issues as well.”
