Mark Satterfield, M.D. Plurnas County Health Officer Influenza is once again at epidemic levels in Plumas County, as it is throughout the U.S. "The flu" is unpleasant for everyone, but for high-risk people such as children under 5, older adults, pregnant women and people with underlying health problems it can be dangerous enough to require hospitalization or worse. When any of these higher-risk individuals comes down with flu, it's important they be started on antiviral medications within one to two days. They should contact their health care provider to be seen promptly, and if that fails, come to the emergency room. Please put on a mask when you come in the door and avoid contact with other patients. Symptoms of influenza typically include abrupt onset of fever plus cough or sore throat. These are often accompanied by headache, muscle and body aches, runny or stuffy nose, profound fatigue and sometimes nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. The first principle of treating the flu is to stay home from work, school and other public places until all symptoms have resolved. Flu is readily passed from person to person through the air, and also from objects we commonly touch like doorknobs and grocery carts. Drink lots of liquids (don't worry about solids), use acetaminophen (up to 4,000 mg a day) and get plenty of rest. Do not use aspirin because it can, rarely, cause Reye's syndrome when taken by a person with influenza. Remember to cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing and wash your hands frequently or use an alcohol-based rub. It's also not too late to get a "flu shot" (influenza immunization) to help prevent the flu, offered at Plumas County public health clinics and most pharmacies and medical providers throughout the county. Although much has been made of the fact that one of the prevalent strains this year was not included in the vaccine, 50 percent of cases have been due to viruses that were included. The current vaccine is still preventing lots of influenza deaths and avoiding missed work and school, not to mention the miserable experience of having the flu. While we're on the subject of immunizations, please make sure your children are immunized against measles. Despite the California measles outbreak, Plumas County schools have not yet had to require nonimmunized children to , stay home, as they must in Southern California. This immunization saves lives and prevents meningitis and deafness. Please protect the children. If you have questions, please call your regular health care provider or Plumas County Public Health Agency at 283-6330 for more information. a,g an ga: Lighting Carpets Blinds Wood Flooring Hours: Open Wed-Sun, 9:30AM - 4PM 7455 Highway 89 P.O.
