Flu Season Still Here

Spring may be here, but that doesn’t mean residents are safe from the flu.

Flu season starts usually around October and can last up to June.

Lambton Public Health Supervisor Erin Courtney says there have been 45 confirmed cases of the flu locally and one death, down significantly from last year.

Courtney says about 5,000 people attended community clinics, compared to 7,600 last year.
