Santa Cruz County Public Health urges residents to take preventive measures against circulating viruses this holiday season. Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) and the flu are causing illness in our local communities, and there is still the continued risk of COVID-19.

“As we navigate through respiratory illness season, it’s important to continue basic prevention methods like vaccination, frequent hand washing, and wearing a mask.”

– Dr. Cal Gordon, Deputy Health Officer for the County of Santa Cruz
