Respiratory Viral Update for Southern CA

We have started to see some scattered RSV in the community. Not a lot, just enough to keep us testing and reporting. We have quite a bit of parainfluenza 1 from multiple sites. As you know, parainfluenza type 1 is a common virus associated with croup and is associated with outbreaks of croup type illnesses in the fall (despite the WARM temperatures, it is fall!). Stay tuned to this blogsite for updates on RSV and influenza (eventually!).
