Valley Fever Watch

After yesterday's haboob, you're probably at a greater risk for coming down with Valley Fever. Most infections are minor and don't present with any serious symptoms, but it can be deadly for some people, especially those who are immunocompromised.

So, if you happen to come down with a cough, fever or flu-like symptoms within the next few weeks, make sure to ask your provider to consider it a potential cause.
