As we are nearing the upcoming Flu Season, Nurse Ferron wanted to highlight some resources for families to understand the differences and similarities between the Seasonal Flu and COVID 19. It is often hard to distinguish between illnesses unless a test is done for both. Please ask your physician about obtaining a flu vaccine for your family today!


Further information can be found at the CDC website here.

Here's a handy article that covers frequently asked questions from NPR.
