About This Year's Flu

What Public Health Tracks

Public Health tracks cases of influenza (flu) and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). The team that tracks these cases creates weekly reports during the influenza/RSV season. At the end of the year, a yearly report summarizes the data. 

The 2023-2024 Flu/RSV season began on October 1, 2023, and continues through September 28, 2024.

Public Health tracks flu and RSV cases by MMWR weeks, which is a standard way across the United States of numbering weeks in a year to track disease. (Learn more about MMWR weeks). Weekly reports start on Sunday and end the following Saturday.
