Flu Season is Well Under Way

Be smart!

The incidence of influenza and other flu like illness is rising in our area. Please pray and rest at home if you are ill. If you have been exposed to someone who is sick, or if you are immunocompromised:

  • use the hand sanitizers located at each entrance
  • nod & smile to your pew neighbor at the Sign of Peace
  • receive the Host in your hand
  • bypass the Cup

It’s not too late to get a flu shot!  It is thought to be 30 % effective against this strain, and may lesson your symptoms if you get the flu!  Our parish nurse is monitoring the situation each week through the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and our local health departments
