According to the report, the Putnam County Department of Health is reporting over 400 cases of the flu for the week ending December 3rd. That means the flu numbers are double what they were the week before. Positive COVID-19 cases are also rising in Mahopac.

While this is very much a problem for Mahopac, the influenza surge is not isolated in the hamlet. Just over the state line in Danbury, CT, flu numbers are on the rise with the City reporting 181 cases for the first week of December.

The Putnam County Health Department says residents can be proactive by getting vaccinated "through pharmacies, healthcare providers, and here at the department of health as well."

The Health Department has a clinic at 1 Geneva Road in Brewster. You would need an appointment to visit the clinic, call 845-808-1390, extension 43230 to learn more about times or to schedule a visit. The Putnam County Health Department also urges residents to be socially distant and avoid crowded situations.

Creepy CT - New Images Beyond the Walls of Newtown's Abandoned Asylum - Fairfield Hills

Since it's frowned upon (illegal) to go inside the buildings without permission, there are not that many photos/videos from inside the walls. When a new video or photos surface, I jump on it, and that is exactly what I did when these images appeared on September 23, 2022.

Haunting in the Hat City - Halloween IS Deer Hill Avenue in Danbury

The Halloween experience in Danbury, CT is all about Deer Hill Avenue. The police close off the street, the homeowners go to great length to decorate their homes and thousands of trick-or-treaters line the street each year in search of candy. Despite some rain, 2022 appeared to be another successful Halloween on DHA. My wife Erica and I brought our daughter Vida (zombie) to enjoy the spooky experience.
