Theodore Roosevelt National Park will still be open on the holi- day and primitive camping is avail- able. The grounds at Knife River Indian Villages will also be open on the holiday. "We encourage visitors to enjoy their national parks in winter," said Valerie Naylor, state coordinator for the National Park Service in North Dakota. "Winter often provides outstanding phot6'6gportunities and ..... interesting wildlife viewing." The visitor centers in the North Dakota national parks are usually closed only three days per year - Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day. This year, President George W. Bush issued an executive order also excusing most employees from duty on Dec. 26. State says common flu strain is getting more diffic:ult to treat BISMARCK - The North Dakota Department of Health is stressing the importance of influen- za vaccination after tests show a common treatment is no longer working on certain kinds of the flu. Tests completed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have shown that a common strain of the flu, known as type A H1NI, is becoming resist- ant to a common treatment. Data shows that of the 50 flu viruses test- ed, 49 (98 percent), could not be treated with the antiviral Tamiflu. "Influenza can be very serious, causing extended periods of missed work or school and hospitaliza- tions. Sometimes it can be serious enough to cause death," said Abbi Pierce, immunization surveillance coordinator for the Department of Health. "This year we will have even fewer options to treat influen- za, so it's that much more impor- tant to prevent it and get vaccinated now." So far this season, seven cases of influenza have been reported in North Dakota. One of those cases has been culture confirmed, mean- ing that more extensive lab tests were done to see what kind (or strain) of flu it was. "The lab tests confirmed that it was an influenza A H1 strain, which is a normal strain that we see every flu season," said Michelle Feist, influenza surveillance coordinator. "That is impoant for us to know because the flu vaccine protects against these norma! " circulating strains of influenza. This helps us reinforce the importance of getting vaccinated against the flu." The U.S, (enters for Disease Control and Prevention recom- mends that.everyone be vaccinated against the flu, especially the fol- lowing: all children ages 6 months through 18 years, household con- tacts of infants younger than 6 months, all adults ages 50 and older, residents of long-term care facili- ties, pregnant women, and people of any age who have long-term health problems such as heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, dia- betes, asthma, anemia, weakened immune systems due to HIV/AIDS and cancer treatments, and breath- ing problems due to neuromuscular disorders. People who could spread the disease to those at high risk - such as health-care workers, caregivers and household contacts - also should be vaccinated. Typical flu symptoms include fever, dry cough, sore throat, headache, muscle aches and extreme fatigue.
