|Thus far in Missouri, the rate of flu infections have flat-lined!|
That said, now is not the time to relax good health practices. As of the date of this post (Dec 8, 2016) we have yet to get into the real 'meat' of the coming Holiday season! People and kids will be shopping en mass at local stores, there will be lots of parties and those activities mixed with cold weather can exacerbate the rates of infections! I've already heard of cases where kids have gotten sick (unknown if from colds or the flu) and have given that to their moms and dads. So, be careful, get your flu shot and wash those hands!
