FLAGSTAFF (AP) - Coconino County officials say five Flagstaff residents have become the first to fall victim to influenza this season.
The county's Public Health Services District says the patients range in age from infant to the 30s.
Twenty flu cases have been reported so far around Arizona. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services website, there are no confirmed cases of influenza in Pima County.
To help prevent the spread of germs, health officials recommend people wash their hands frequently during flu season, avoid touching their faces, cover their mouths when coughing or sneezing and stay home when they are sick.
