Influenza, or “the flu,” is a highly contagious viral infection. The flu is often confused with the common cold, but flu symptoms tend to develop quickly and are usually more severe.
If you have suffered a personal loss, or your community has been affected by the flu, we offer emotional support that will help you understand the bereavement process.
