Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County tracks local seasonal influenza activity on a weekly basis. We have created color-coded levels of flu activity to help you understand how much flu is going on in our county.
Weekly flu activity levels are based on the percentage of reported Emergency Department (ED) visits for fever and influenza-like symptoms compared to total ED visits. Each weekly percentage is compared to a baseline average percentage from five previous flu seasons to determine the current weekly flu activity level.
|Current Level||Level Descriptions|
|High||Well above average|
|Moderate||Moderately above average|
|Low||Slightly above average|
|Minimal||Average or below average|
