4 New Napa County Flu Cases Hospitalized Over the Weekend

35 people hospitalized since Jan. 6, although some been released.

Four more people were hospitalized with flu in Napa County since Friday, officials said Monday.

Napa County spokeswoman Elizabeth Emmett said one woman between the ages of 40 and 50 was placed in intensive care.

In addition two women, one between 30 and 40 and pregnant and the other over age 65, were placed in regular hospital rooms.

One man between the ages of 40 and 50 was also hospitalized in a regular unit.

Emmett said a total of 35 people have been hospitalized since Jan. 6, but some have been since released. One person has died from the flu. 

"Please note that the new totals represent how many people have been hospitalized since Jan. 6," Emmett said. "Because length of stay varies, the new total does not represent how many people remain hospitalized at any given time; it only tracks admissions."

Emmett said Public Health urges residents to get vaccinated and follow proper hygiene and to stay home if ill.
