As elsewhere in the province, influenza and other viruses that are common at this time of year are affecting the Northeast region, including Chetwynd. A number of children and families are/have been ill with influenza-like symptoms in the Peace region. These illnesses are typical for this time of year. Viruses are generally spread easily among children, especially during the peak season, but most children who become ill make a full recovery without any medical help. Seniors and people of any age with underlying medical conditions, especially heart and lung conditions are at a higher risk for severe complications of influenza and other respiratory viruses, such as Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).
