Flu virus hits area hard. The Murray County Medical Center as well as Golden Living Center, are closed to just family members.
“People who got the flu shot will not get as sick from the viruses as if they hadn’t gotten the shot. Currently, Murray County Medical Center does not have any of the regular flu vaccine available,” Mechtenberg stated.

Darlene Mechtenberg, Murray County Medical Center Infection Control and Employee Health and Wellness Coordinator, has words of advice to offer regarding the current flu season. She stated on Monday that it is very important for everyone to “Wash your hands and wash your hands. If you are sick, stay home and rest - rest and drink plenty of fluids.”

Currently, the Murray County Hospital is closed to visitors with the exception of immediate family members. No children are being allowed to visit at this time.
