Weekly Respiratory Virus Update

The Weekly Respiratory Virus Update (formerly Weekly Influenza News)  is produced weekly, from November to April, for the respiratory virus season to date (September 1 to present). The report shares the most recent week's local influenza and COVID-19 activity throughout the respiratory season, providing an overview of circulating respiratory viruses. It is posted each Wednesday for the previous week of local respiratory virus reporting, from Sunday to Saturday (inclusive).
