Influenza Activity, Surveillance and Reports

The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) collects, compiles, and analyzes information on flu activity year-round in New York State (NYS), and produces a weekly report during the flu season (October through the following May).

2019-2020 Influenza Season

For the past five weeks, the reported number of lab-confirmed influenza cases and hospitalizations have steadily declined. With only sporadic cases being reported statewide and overall influenza activity remaining low, effective immediately, the New York State Department of Health will discontinue influenza surveillance reporting for the 2019-20 season. Data for the 2020-21 influenza season will resume in mid-October.
