The Genesee County Health Department has some health advice for people affected by flooding

The Genesee County Health Department (GCHD) would like to remind everyone to remain safe during this recent flooding.

The GCHD reminds people not to drink or allow children to play in flood water. Children also shouldn't play with any toys that have been in flood water.

Anyone with open wounds should not walk through flood waters.

Additionally, once the flood is over, be sure to remove any standing water and get indoor areas dry in order to avoid mold.
