The start of this new year finds Tarrant County in the midst of a
rampant flu season. Public Health refers to such conditions as
widespread influenza --and it may not have even peaked yet. While
anyone can get the flu, those younger than 5 and older than 65 are the
most at risk. So it's appropriate to take certain precautions to
protect yourself and those you love from the flu. It would be even
better if you can make them a habit. TCPH's Facebook page contains lots of
helpful hints that are quick reads.
The recent emergency alarms in Hawaii and in Japan demonstrate that we should all have an idea of what to do should an emergency arise. Our Public Health Preparedness web page offers lots of information that can help you, your family, your community or your business develop emergency plans, should the unthinkable happen.
I wish the best of health for you and your family this and every year.
