Spring is right around the corner, but the end of flu season is not.
The Winnebago County Health Department says it’s seeing a high volume of influenza in the region; a recent report showed more than 300 new cases within a week.
But that isn’t unexpected this time of year.
Todd Kisner, with the health department, says more than 60 percent of the new cases were among children and the elderly.
So this led to hospitals tightening certain age groups from visiting.
