Dr. Joyce Michael is with Mountain View Medical Group. In the Briargate area, she’s seeing symptoms like high fever, aching, dry cough, sore throat and clear runny nose.

She says it lasts six to seven days without treatment from your doctor.

Dr. Michael also says it’s not too late to get your flu shot. She says the flu season lasts through May. So there’s still time to prevent it.
