One was associated with a 2009 H1N1 virus, one was associated with a seasonal influenza A (H3) virus, and one was associated with an influenza A virus for which the subtype was not determined. o Outpatient Illness Surveillance: The proportion of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness (ILI) was 1.3%, which is below the national baseline of 2.4%.
