“The public is invited to any of our clinics,” said public health nurse Cheryl Andreasen, in a prepared statement. “We will be adhering to COVID-19 guidelines so please wear a mask and stay 6-feet apart from those outside your immediate household.”
Flu season typically stretches from fall to spring, Andreasen says.
“It’s really important to get that protection early, especially this year due to COVID-19,” she said. “We want to avoid complications that could come from becoming infected with both viruses, and to keep our hospitalizations down as we are facing a novel, highly contagious virus that causes COVID-19.”
