The 2012-13 flu season has already become the worst of the last seven years, according to KershawHealth Infection and Prevention Control Director Paula Guild. The good news could be, however, that the number of flu cases peaked earlier in the season.
Last April, I wrote an article called "Switching frequencies" about how local agencies were on track to meet federal emergency communication mandates.
