The holiday season is nearly over and winter has officially begun, so of course it is time for everyone to get sick.

If you live in Ogle County, or travel there frequently, you may want to start wearing a face mask if you don't want to get sick, because a flu outbreak is in full effect right now. The outbreak is so bad in fact, Rochelle Community Hospital has had to issue visitor restrictions to help stop the spread of illness.



Please, if you're feeling sick, STAY HOME. Only you can prevent the spread of sickness.
