Editorial: Help prevent the spread of flu

[Owatonna People's Press, November 01, 2009] It’s time for a little common sense. In its most recently released statement, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that influenza activity continued to increase in the United States. The conclusion that we ought to draw is that the H1N1 virus is real and is a threat to public health. That being said, we note with gratitude that both the Owatonna Clinic and the Owatonna Hospital are being proactive in addressing the threat faced by the flu. The hospital, along with other hospitals across the state, will impose stricter limitations on visitors as a way to prevent the further spread of the flu.
