The Weekly Respiratory Virus Update 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). 

COVID-19 HealthSTATS icons Community Risk Level

The purpose of the COVID-19 Community Risk Level is to help you determine the best ways to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 infection and serious illness. The COVID-19 Community Risk Level is based on five indicators (percent positivity of PCR tests, local cases, hospitalizations, institutional outbreaks, and wastewater surveillance) that are monitored weekly. Together, these indicators make up the current overall COVID-19 risk level in our community. Visit page.
