A reported 239 people visited both the Lander and Riverton offices during the month of November. As well as, 230 offsite visits.

The state reports there have been sporadic cases of influenza A and B in the state and county. However, the flu activity is increasing. There are several influenza type illnesses out there and often doctors treat those cases as influenza without testing, Becky explained. Making the exact numbers difficult to know.
