        Report Date: November 11 to November 17, 2018 (MMWR week 46)

        What’s New This Week
        Influenza activity remains low as UDOH continues to receive reports of sporadic influenza-associated hospitalized cases and positive laboratory results. The percentage of patients presenting to outpatient clinics with influenza-like illness (ILI) continued to slowly increase this week, potentially due to the circulation of other respiratory conditions like parainfluenza. Overall, the UDOH is not observing widespread transmission of influenza. This is still a good time to receive your flu shot before influenza begins to widely circulate.

          What’s New This Week
          Influenza activity increased this week as UDOH received reports of six new influenza-associated hospitalizations. The percentage of patients presenting to outpatient clinics with influenza-like illness (ILI) also increased, potentially due to the circulation of other respiratory conditions like parainfluenza. Despite these increases, UDOH is not observing widespread transmission of influenza, and the season is still classified as low severity. This is still a good time to receive your flu shot before influenza begins to widely circulate.

            What’s New This Week
            Influenza activity remained low in Utah from November 25th to December 1st, 2018. During this week, UDOH confirmed two influenza-associated hospitalizations. The percentage of patients presenting to outpatient clinics with influenza-like illness (ILI) remained low but slightly above what is normally seen at this time of the year potentially due to the circulation of other respiratory conditions like parainfluenza and RSV. UDOH is not observing widespread transmission of influenza. This is still a good time to protect you and your friends and family from influenza by getting a flu shot.

                    2 Utah children have died from flu this season, but ‘we have not seen the peak’ of it
                    POSTED 9:28 PM, JANUARY 2, 2019, BY KIERSTEN NUÑEZ, UPDATED AT 09:53PM, JANUARY 2, 2019


                    (KSTU) — This season two children in Utah have died from the flu, according to the State Health Department. That's in comparison to no deaths at all last flu season.

                    “It's always disheartening nobody wants to see it or hear about it,” said Rebecca Ward, Utah Department of Health and Bureau of Epidemiology.

                    So far this season the flu has claimed two young lives in Utah.

                    Heading into 2019, Utah is seeing increasing influenza activity. Influenza is now widespread in Utah with surveillance indicating Bear River, Davis, Salt Lake, Southwest, Utah County, and Weber-Morgan health districts are experiencing high influenza-like illness (ILI) activity. So far the season severity estimate is low due to below average hospitalizations and laboratory reports. However, severity may increase in the upcoming weeks. It’s not too late to get a flu shot to protect yourself and your family.

                            What’s New This Week
                            Influenza activity continues to increase in Utah. The 2018-19 influenza season is now rated “Moderate Severity” as two severity indicators, influenza-like illness (ILI) and percent positive laboratory results, crossed their moderate severity thresholds (in yellow below). The number of reported influenza-associated hospitalizations reached a season-high of 93, but is still below the historic average. Take steps to prevent the flu this week by getting a flu shot if you haven’t already, wash your hands often, cover your coughs and sneezes, and call your doctor if you think you have influenza. It’s important to stay home if you are sick with influenza for at least 24 hours after fever subsides.

                              Influenza activity increased throughout the state this week. The 2018-19 influenza season is rated “Moderate Severity”. The number of new influenza-associated hospitalizations reached a season-high of 113, but is still lower than the average peak value of past seasons. Influenza activity typically peaks in February, so it’s important to protect yourself and your family by getting a flu shot if you haven’t already, wash your hands often, cover your coughs and sneezes, and call your doctor if you think you have influenza. If you do have influenza, stay home for at least 24 hours after fever subsides to help stop its spread.
