                              * Influenza surveillance activities for the 2011-2012 influenza season began on October 2, 2011.
                              * Influenza activity in NYC currently is low.
                              * Influenza-like-illness visits are at 2.2&#37; of all weekly visits, which is below the Mid-Atlantic and
                              national baselines.
                              * Approximately 1.8% of all specimens submitted for influenza testing were positive for influenza,
                              of which 18 specimens were positive for Flu A and 3 specimens were positive for Flu B. In addi-
                              tion, 18% of specimens tested were positive for RSV. Influenza A specimens subtyped within the
                              last several weeks at the Public Health Laboratory have been primarily H3N2.

                              There were no reported nosocomial respiratory outbreaks from long-term care facilities during Week 4.
