Allen County public health officials are recommending temporary visitation restrictions for area hospitals and nursing home facilities in response to increased flu activity. As of Dec. 29, 2017, the Indiana State Department of Health reports there have been nine influenza-associated deaths in Indiana this flu season.

Health officials across the state of Indiana are seeing an increase in influenza like illnesses. Indiana has moved from sporadic influenza activity to now, widespread activity. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), circulating strains look to be Influenza A H3, which has caused severe symptoms and in some cases death in the elderly and the very young.

“The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year, but good health habits like covering your cough and washing your hands often can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu,” Allen County Health Commissioner Dr. Deborah McMahan said, “It’s not too late to get a flu shot if you haven’t already.”

It’s an accomplishment Allen County has been building toward for a number of years. And today, the Allen County Board of Commissioners announced that construction investment exceeded $1 billion during calendar year 2017.

According to the Allen County Building Department, the value of building permits issued last year totaled $1.032 billion. The previous high was in 2015, when the value of permits was $931.6 million.

The Allen County Board of Commissioners and the Allen County Regional Water and Sewer District today announced creation of a 0% interest loan program to help homeowners make the final connection between their home and the districts’ sewer lines.

Both the commissioners and ACRWSD board recognize that situations may exist in which tap fees or connection costs associated with a lateral sewer connection to a new district sanitary sewer present a financial hardship situation to a homeowner. The new program is expected to provide a financing option for homeowners who apply, meet the requirements of the program, and are selected and approved by the district in administering this program.
