2020 - 2021 Flu Activity Report
While influenza is not a reportable disease in Illinois, IDPH examines reports from many health care sites throughout the state. These sites include physician offices, emergency departments, and other clinics that report acute illness with influenza-like illness, and institutional settings such as nursing homes and prisons that report outbreaks. Accordingly, IDPH monitors disease trends and influenza activities as they occur on a weekly basis.
