The flu is a serious respiratory disease caused by the influenza virus. The flu season can begin as early as October and sometimes lasts until May. Symptoms, which can range from mild to very severe, include a fever or chills, head and body aches, fatigue, sore throat, cough, headache, runny or stuffy nose, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Most people who get the flu need to spend time in bed resting, and may feel sick for as long as two weeks.
We appreciate your understanding in this matter. It is all of our responsibilities to keep patients, staff, physicians, and guests healthy this flu season.
