Flu Season Under Way Now

December 12, 2013 State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments

The Wyoming Department of Health is urging residents now to take common-sense steps to avoid becoming ill with influenza or spreading it to others as influenza seems to be spreading through the state again.  According to Surveillance Epidemiologist Reggie McClinton, the state is not seeing as many cases as this time last year, but reported influenza activity is definitely picking up. He says the area of highest activity right now is Campbell County. So far, only a handful of cases have been reported in Teton County. The department is urging residents to get their flu shots, and should they contract flu-like symptoms, stay home from work, school, daycare or daily activities that would put them in contact with others. Of course the common courtesies of covering one’s mouth and nose while sneezing or coughing helps stem the spread of the illness, and preventative measures such as washing one’s hands frequently can help one remain healthy.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer.
