Flu Season Drawing to a Close

By March 30, 2013

Follow me on:

After a flu season that the CDC is describing as early and intense, and which lasted a little longer than average, this year's flu season is finally drawing to a close.

That doesn't mean that it is over yet though. Keep in mind that the CDC is still reporting widespread flu activity in six states, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, and North Carolina, and only one state, Kansas, is reporting no flu activity.

Even Google's Flu Trends is still reporting a moderate level of flu activity across the United States.

So while this year's flu season has certainly peaked, we will likely continue to see  some flu activity over the next few weeks and months while flu season draws to a close and officially ends.
