In their regular meeting this week, Bond County Health Department Administrator Sean Eifert reported to the county board of health that the health department has received 72 reports of Influenza A and 1 Influenza B case has been reported during this flu season.
Eifert also said the department recently received a two-year maternal and child health certification for its Family Planning and High Risk Infant Follow-up Programs. These programs serve pregnant women and families with infants and young children, helping to obtain health care and other assistance.
For the month of January, the department gained $47,546.30. Eifert noted the health department’s cash position has remained steady for the past 9 months, indicating initiatives to increase revenue and reduce expenses seem to be having a positive impact.
