The 2016-2017 influenza season began on October 2, 2016 and ended on May 20, 2017. The ADS will continue to monitor influenza activity throughout the summer and will transition to monthly reports which will be published on the first Thursday of each month starting July 6, 2017. Reports will be published by 10:00am. Monthly reports will continue until the 2017-18 influenza season begins the first week in October 2017.
