Respiratory Viruses gone (almost!)

Over the past three weeks we have seen the number of positive RSV and Influenza B tests significantly decline. Last week was the first week we had no positives from any site. We are still seeing an occasional adenovirus and parainfluenza positive, so stay alert. Because RSV season is over and influenza is gone, the amount of testing is considerably down, so we may not be picking up our other viruses that continue to circulate like adeno and paraflu.
I am looking into reporting out enterovirus positive cultures/PCR in the future!
