Washtenaw County Flu Activity

April 5, 2016:

Influenza levels in Washtenaw County peaked the week ending March 12.  However, influenza continues to circulate in the community and will likely be present through the end of April.  Respiratory illness in local schools and child care centers is starting to decrease. 
 
Flu-related hospitalizations are occurring in all age groups.  Influenza A/H1N1 is still the dominant strain but A/H3 and B have been detected as well. Unfortunately, the first flu-related death was reported in a Washtenaw older adult in early March.
