Actually, The CDC's latest report from the first week in February (released this past Friday) showed California's activity to be "moderate", down from "high" the previous 2 weeks.

In addition to a flu shot and hand washing, a strong immune system can make a tremendous difference in your body's ability to fight diseases. Nutrition, exercise and attitude have a significant impact on your immune system's ability to fight sickness. Treat your body well and you will enjoy the benefits!
