Respiratory Viral Activity In Southern California

We have started to see the beginning of respiratory viral season in Southern California (although the outside temperature may not feel like it!).
Several of our reporting institutions are reporting samples positive for RSV. There have also been a few influenza positive specimens. Parainfluenza 2 is the predominant viral respiratory pathogen that is circulating but we expect it will soon be taken over by RSV and influenza. Stay tuned.
