Flu Season Isn’t Over Yet

The Pacific Northwest is seeing a particularly roughly flu season and it’s not over yet. Oregon, Washington and Idaho have all reported an increase in deaths due to the flu and Deschutes County Public Health said they’ve seen an increase in flu reports locally this year as well. Central Oregon Daily’s Austin Reed sat down with Dr. Eric Wattenburg of Your Care Urgent Care in Redmond to get an update on this year’s flu and how people can protect themselves. According to Wattenburg its as simple as getting your flu shot, washing your hands and wearing a mask if you’re coughing or around people who are coughing.
