The percentage of respiratory specimens testing positive for influenza in clinical laboratories was low.

    • Outpatient Illness Surveillance: The proportion of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness (ILI) was 1.6%, which is below the national baseline of 2.1%. Two of 10 regions reported ILI at or above region-specific baseline levels. One state experienced moderate ILI activity; New York City Puerto Rico and 49 states experienced minimal ILI activity; and the District of Columbia had insufficient data.

    • Geographic Spread of Influenza: The geographic spread of influenza in Guam was reported as widespread; Puerto Rico reported regional activity; five states reported local activity; 39 states reported sporadic activity; and the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and six states reported no influenza activity.
