Third Influenza-Associated Death Reported in Denton County
DENTON COUNTY, TX … The Denton County Health Department (DCHD) has received a report of an influenza-associated death in Highland Village. The patient was a female in her 80s with underlying health conditions; vaccination status is unknown. For patient confidentiality, no further information will be released. This is the third influenza-associated death in Denton County for 2013-2014 flu season.
“High levels of influenza activity continue to be reported in Denton County,” says Juan Rodriguez, Denton County Health Department Chief Epidemiologist. “The 2009 H1N1 virus has been the predominant circulating influenza strain. If the H1N1 virus continues to circulate widely, illness that disproportionately affects young and middle-aged adults may occur this season.”
All unvaccinated residents are strongly encouraged to get immunized for the flu immediately.
“Residents should remain vigilant to protect themselves from the flu,” says Bing Burton, Denton County Health Department Director. “Remember that it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to fully protect you. Practicing good health habits and frequent handwashing, as well as staying home when you are ill will also help to protect the community’s health.”
Free flu vaccines are still available at both locations of DCHD (see locations and hours below). Visit DCHD’s Immunizations website (www.dentoncounty.com/immunizations) for more information on vaccinations offered. Visit the U.S. Health and Human Services flu website (www.flu.gov), or the CDC flu website (www.cdc.gov/flu) for details about flu symptoms, treatment, prevention tips, vaccination, and other flu topics. You can also get updates though Twitter from both agencies by following @CDCFlu or @FluGov.

PARDON OUR DUST
CROSS OAK RANCH HOMEOWNER ASSOCIATION INC. COMMUNICATION
August 29th 2013
For the next few months, homeowners wanting access to the lake will have to access it from Longhorn Drive ( see DIRECTIONS BELOW). The homeowners will not be able to access the lake on the north side while the new lots are under construction. The access from the end of Wagon Trail including the roadway, parking area and all of that will not have access during construction.
When the lots are complete the sidewalks inside the tract will have access to the existing sidewalk that goes around the lake. Homeowners will not be able to access the lake off of Sagebrush either since this area will also be under construction.
The trail coming from North of the elementary school will also be ending at the property line of the new this new phase. Those using that trail will not be able to get through to the lake either.
The good news is the construction entrance is off of Naylor Road to avoid large trucks and such from coming through the community.
DIRECTIONS TO LONGHORN DRIVE
From the main community entryway roads go south on 720,take a right on to Martop rd, pass the church on your right, then right on to Longhorn Drive, go straight pass the island and look for the sign to the lake and path on the right before you get to the 1st home on the right on Longhorn Drive.
We just found out August 29th construction was beginning today. We apology for any inconvenience.
Jake's Place Park
As a young teenager, Jake Mazur loved sports and bass fishing. In 1994, Jake and his father, a former City Council member, were fishing on Lake Fork when a storm unexpectedly arose. Before returning to shore, Jake was struck and killed by lightning. Following this unfortunate accident, Mayor Harold Bowden and the City Council obtained 8.5 acres and named the park "Jake's Place" to honor and remember Jake.
Jake's Place contains two baseball fields, a basketball court, picnic benches and grills, the Duane Olson Pavilion, and playground equipment. During the spring and fall baseball seasons, the baseball fields may be reserved for organized practices by returning a completed Reservation Form and Liability Release Forms. The Duane Olson Pavilion may also be reserved by Oak Point residents.

PRESS RELEASE: County Issues Mandatory Burn Ban
Denton County Commissioners Court yesterday instated a Local Disaster Declaration for Threat of Wildland Fire Due to Dry Conditions in Denton County.
Denton County Judge Mary Horn and the Denton County Department of Emergency Services, in the interest of fire safety and fire prevention, are asking for the cooperation of all Denton County residents with respect to outdoor burning. High winds, low humidity, and dead vegetation have contributed to the risk of large and destructive wildfires. At risk are homes, valuable property, and lives. Denton County has experienced an average of 2 wildfires per day since beginning of August with several burning more than 20 acres. Some fires are the result of careless or negligent outdoor burning, some are the result of discarded burning cigarettes from motor vehicles, and some of the fires are intentionally set.
Denton County is again experiencing dry weather with little chance for relief in the immediate future. The summer vegetation is already dying and starting to become very dry with the lack of rainfall through June and July. The early summer weather conditions did not produced adequate soil moisture and will not support vegetative growth which leaves us with a dangerous amount of wildland fire fuel. The Denton County burning ban will continue until drought conditions are alleviated.
The mandatory Burn Ban will ban all outdoor burning, include restrictions on outdoor hot work (welding and cutting torch operations), and the use of combustible materials. Violation of the court ordered burn-ban is a class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.00. County Judge Mary Horn stated, “Prevention of potential wildland fires is essential to the safety of County residents. Wildfires can be devastating and difficult on everyone, especially farmers and ranchers; wildfires can destroy not only lives and property, but livelihood as well. With everyone’s help we can make our communities safer places to live and enjoy life.” Denton County Emergency Services Chief Jody Gonzalez stated, “Citizens should take measures to protect their home by removing unwanted combustible debris and vegetation away from their homes and be sure to keep water hoses ready accessible in the event a small fire starts. Always call 911 early to notify your fire department of any fire to assure a faster response and that complete extinguishment has occurred.
Anyone with questions, concerns or complaints about outdoor burning should contact the Denton County Department of Emergency Services at 940/349-2840 or 911 for immediate emergencies.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – August 21, 2013
Denton County Health Department Confirms Five Measles Cases
DENTON COUNTY, TX … Denton County Health Department has confirmed five cases of measles, based on clinical symptoms and a link to a previous case. The cases range in age from nine to 17, and are located in the Justin area. All five cases were not immunized. All cases are linked to one previously identified case in Tarrant County, who had traveled outside the United States to a country where measles is common.
The most effective way to prevent measles is to be vaccinated. Health officials are encouraging residents to check their vaccination records with their health care provider. “For individuals who are unvaccinated, measles cases in the community should be viewed as a warning to strongly consider vaccination,” says Denton County Health Department Director, Bing Burton. “Those who are not currently immunized should re-evaluate the benefits and risks of vaccination, based on the presence of an outbreak.”
All children should receive one dose of the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine between 12-15 months of age, and a second dose before entering school, between four and 6 years. Anyone born during or after 1957 who has not had measles or been vaccinated is at risk and should get at least one dose of MMR vaccine. Two doses are recommended for adults who are at higher risk, such as college students, international travelers, and healthcare personnel. Adults born before 1957 are considered immune to measles.
Two measles cases were reported in Denton County earlier this year, with the initial case being a person who traveled to the United States from another country where measles is endemic. Prior to 2013, there have not been any measles cases in Denton County for several years. About Measles
Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease that is spread through sneezing or coughing. The virus can live in the air or on infected surfaces for up to two hours. Measles spreads through the air by breathing, coughing or sneezing. It is so contagious that if one person has it, 90% of people close to that person who are not immune will get it.
Measles symptoms typically appear in an infected person between eight to 14 days after being exposed. A typical case of measles begins with a fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes, and sore throat. Three to five days after the start of symptoms, a red or reddish-brown rash appears around the person’s face or hairline, and spreads to the neck, trunk, arms, legs, and feet. The person’s fever may spike to more than 104 degrees Fahrenheit. People are considered contagious from four days before to four days after the rash appears.
Additional information about the measles illness, complications, and MMR vaccine safety can be found at www.cdc.gov/measles.
