What to Know This Flu Season
Flu and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. While it’s not possible to say what will happen, it’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this fall and winter.

Protect yourself, your family, and your community against flu this fall and winter by getting a flu vaccine. Also follow other CDC recommendations to protect yourself from both flu and COVID-19.

Reflection of the Week
"Although the life of a person is in a land full of thorns and weeds, there is always a space in which the good seed can grow. You have to trust God...Let us pray for peace: peace in the world and in each of our hearts."
