The flu is back in Kershaw County and it’s come a little early this season. As of Dec. 31, KershawHealth reported 173 positive flu tests. According to Paula Guild, the hospital’s director of infection control and prevention, 103 of those tests came back positive for Type A flu; the remaining 70 were of Type B. Guild said that while KershawHealth tracks flu cases year round, the flu season is considered to start in October and running through March, with most cases hitting at the end of the season in February and March.
