A significant increase of reported influenza cases at five Wood County long-term care facilities has prompted the facilities to discourage visits from residents who have a cough, fever or other flu symptoms, according to a news release from the Wood County Health Department.

Wood County residents are asked to abstain from visiting at the facilities until they have been fever free for more than 24 hours, the release said.

Influenza vaccines are available at primary care providers. Wood County Health Department offers free flu vaccines for children ages 6 months through 18 years old. Call 715-421-8911 for an appointment.
