Interested in local influenza trends?
Our Respiratory Diseases Dashboard is conveniently separated into three sections: Overview, COVID-19 Activity, and Influenza Activity.
The dashboard provides localized epidemiological information on COVID-19 activity including daily case counts, hospitalizations, ICU admissions and deaths, outbreaks, and laboratory testing, but will also include a detailed overall summary of the respiratory season that also includes influenza information.
