Skagit County Weekly Respiratory Reports

NOTE: Due to seasonality of Influenza and RSV, surveillance occurs between October 1 and May 31. To date, COVID-19 has not shown a clear seasonal pattern, so data shown are according to the respiratory illness season pattern for comparison purposes. Death data is reported once finalized, usually after 30 days.

Activity levels: Our epidemiologists reviewed county emergency department (ED) visit data from past years to determine when respiratory illness related visit levels rise above the baseline, or non-seasonal surge levels. These thresholds are used to define the activity levels in graphics and full report.
