Increase in Flu Activity is Reported

Increase in Flu Activity is Reported

Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and state health officer, says while we are seeing an increase in flu activity in California it is not an unexpected increase, nor is it too late to get vaccinated against the flu.

"California is seeing an accelerated increase in flu activity over the past few weeks," said Dr. Chapman. "You can help prevent further spread of the flu by getting a flu shot."

While influenza activity varies from year to year and is unpredictable, California generally sees an increase in cases in late December or early January and it often peaks in February or March. According to CDPH surveillance indicators, influenza activity in California is beginning to show a steady increase and is now considered to be widespread. Currently, there are more hospitalizations at this point than expected, based on historical trends.

Metalachi the first and only Mariachi Metal band will descend on the 209 like something unseen in the dark with horns wailing and violins playing songs that are familiar but at the same time sounding like they are from a distant (well not so) land.

Metalachi has been gaining popularity all over with their interpretation of classic Metal songs by the likes of Metalica, Slayer, Led Zeppelin, Motorhead, Guns n Roses and Ozzy among others. They are not to be missed.
