Rates of flu-like illness in the state continued their upward creep this week. If past normal flu seasons are any guide, it's likely that we'll see flu rates hit their peak over the next few weeks. That's the good news — the flip side of that is that we can expect flu to continue circulating in our communities even into spring.
