NC sees bump in multiple respiratory illnesses

State public health officials released guidance for clinicians this week regarding management of respiratory illnesses, including flu, RSV and the common cold, in addition to COVID-19.

The Oct. 26 memo from the NC Department of Health and Human Services was prompted by current disease surveillance information, which shows increased activity among respiratory illnesses other than COVID-19. Meanwhile, COVID-19 also remains active across the state.

NCDHHS Medical Epidemiologist Erica Wilson, MD, MPH, notes in the memo that these data could indicate that North Carolina may be in for an especially rough season.
