(St. Paul, MN) -- The Minnesota Department of Health has raised its rating of overall flu activity in the state from "sporadic" to "localized." 

The Health Department received five reports of flu-related hospitalizations and four reports of probable flu outbreaks in Minnesota schools last week.

The department has yet to hear of any outbreaks in nursing homes or other long-term care facilities this season.
