Flu Cases have been on the Rise for Nine Straight weeks in Onondaga County and the County Health Commissioner wonders if we’ll reach the mark this week. Doctor Cynthia Morrow updated the County Legislature’s Health Committee Thursday morning.
A group of Onondaga County lawmakers today got an update on the health department’s mosquito control program. We reported on Wednesday that there are likely to be more mosquitoes as a result of the wet weather, but not necessarily more disease. Still, Health Commissioner Doctor Cynthia Morrow says West Nile virus and Triple-E are a part of the region’s ecology, and they’re trying to control it.
