According to the Washington State Department of Health’s latest weekly influenza report, influenza cases, hospitalizations and deaths continue to be low this year; not quite as low as last year, but well below the long-term averages. Obviously COVID-related precautions have had a positive impact on influenza as well.
It is notable that flu cases have creeped up in the past few weeks, perhaps due to the loosening of COVID precautions.
