DPH DECLARES NO FLU ACTIVITY IN DELAWARE


Delaware's Division of Public Health (DPH) updated Delaware's state flu status today to "no activity," with the period of March 21-27 as the third consecutive week without new H1N1 or other types of influenza cases. DPH reported Delaware's last confirmed case for the week of Feb. 28 - March 6. The total number of confirmed H1N1 cases since Oct. 4 remains 1,976.

"This is excellent news as Delawareans gather this weekend for the holidays," said Dr. Karyl Rattay, DPH director. "DPH will continue to monitor for illness and advise the public if there are changes."
