Respiratory diseases becoming more prevalent

If you do not have the flu, RSV, or COVID-19 yourself, there is becoming a growing possibility that you know someone who does. The combination of the three viruses is slamming hospitals with patients as their prevalence is rising. The increase in cases has led the Centers for Disease Control to recommend masking indoors for all Americans and public officials in the country’s biggest cities considering making it a requirement. Public Health Nurse Cindy Kinnard says while Kewaunee County's COVID-19 numbers have stayed steady, they are hearing increased reports of RSV, the stomach flu, and norovirus. She recommends returning to what worked during the early stages of the pandemic to keep yourself and others healthy.

The CDC says this year’s flu vaccine has matched well with the strain getting so many people sick this winter. Health officials admit, however, that the country is behind last year’s pace of getting vaccinated against the flu.
