RSV still going strong, Influenza steady

We are seeing a persistence of RSV and most hospitals are reporting anywhere from 15-35% positivity. Influenza is still in the community, but for the Los Angeles area and the entire state of California, it remains at "regional" levels. Our blog, as seen in the rest of the state, confirms that our levels of influenza B are significant and at some institutions are as high as 30% of the total influenza isolated.
You can access information about influenza (and RSV) on both the CDC's website: http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/fluactivity.htm
as well as the LA County website: http://www.lapublichealth.org/acd/docs/Flu/Week08issue10.pdf
