"We appreciate the community's cooperation as we impose these restrictions", said Karen Zimmerman, chief nurse officer.

Montgomery County health officials confirmed a man in his 70s died January 9 due to the flu. The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) has confirmed four flu-related deaths so far, but that number is expected to increase.

Seven children died from the flu last week, bringing the total pediatric flu deaths reported to the CDC this season up to 20. Flu symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, headache, and/or muscle aches.
