The team at Sumac Place, an adult mental health facility in Gibsons, are kung-flu fighting and they’ve got the chops to prove it. The team rewrote the lyrics to Kung Fu Fighting to be about the flu and filmed a music video. “We have a diverse team. Many wear masks instead of the flu shot and so we try to support each other however we can during these months,” says Andrea Sierralta, Sumac Place. “We have some staff members who are very committed to keeping things clean, and avoiding the flu and other bugs, so much that a lot of us have to try and keep up with moisturizing due to the effects of hand washing and sanitizer use!"
Both staff and visitors are expected to either have a flu shot or wear a mask for the duration of the flu season, December through March 31, 2016.
