What to Know About COVID-19 and Influenza
Influenza and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses with similar symptoms, but they are caused by very different viruses. Flu season in the U.S. typically begins to increase in October and can last as late as May. While last year’s flu activity was unusually low, likely due to COVID-19 measures such as wearing a mask and staying at home, many of those measures have been relaxed, which could lead to increased flu activity. The CDC anticipates that influenza and COVID-19 may be spreading at the same time this fall and winter. Learn what you can do to protect yourself:
