Flu season hits harder

MONROE - Green County is currently seeing "two to three times" the number of influenza-related hospitalizations compared to the past two flu seasons, according to Green County Health Department Director RoAnn Warden. Through Thursday, 16 Green County residents had been hospitalized due to the flu since Nov. 1, Warden said, with the peak occurring at the end of December and early January. Though hospitalizations have slowed over the past week, it is "too soon to tell" if that trend will continue, she said.
