Sickness Doesn’t Stop in Summer


The late flu season has left some local health officials guessing what’s to come as summer begins. The typical flu season runs November through March. This year, it started in March. Health officials aren’t seeing many flu cases now, but the odd start leaves them questioning what that means for other illnesses as the warmer months continue. “When we have an unusual year, we’re all kind of on edge waiting for what’s next,” said Dr. Stephanie Maves with family medicine at Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse.
