Increase in Flu Activity is Reported

Increase in Flu Activity is Reported

Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and state health officer, says while we are seeing an increase in flu activity in California it is not an unexpected increase, nor is it too late to get vaccinated against the flu.

"California is seeing an accelerated increase in flu activity over the past few weeks," said Dr. Chapman. "You can help prevent further spread of the flu by getting a flu shot."

While influenza activity varies from year to year and is unpredictable, California generally sees an increase in cases in late December or early January and it often peaks in February or March. According to CDPH surveillance indicators, influenza activity in California is beginning to show a steady increase and is now considered to be widespread. Currently, there are more hospitalizations at this point than expected, based on historical trends.

Cal Water’s Annual "Operation Gobble" program helps Stockton needy

Cal Water’s Annual "Operation Gobble" program helps Stockton needy

For the 25th consecutive year, California Water Service Company (Cal Water) donated Thanksgiving turkeys to local needy families through a program called "Operation Gobble."

Since its inception in 1988, the state-wide program has fed hundreds of thousands of needy people. Local legislators participated in the program by recommending charities in their districts that can help with distribution.

This year, Cal Water distributed 800 $15 gift certificates, good for the purchase of a turkey or any turkey product, to local charities. Donating gift certificates rather than frozen turkeys gives additional flexibility to the charities and families that participate in the program. For example, if a family does not wish to prepare a whole turkey, it can purchase ground turkey, turkey breasts, or even turkey bacon. And distributing gift certificates rather than heavy frozen birds eliminates the need for delivery trucks, which is better for the environment.
