This week's flu report shows that rates of flu-like illness in Massachusetts continue on their steady pace as January comes to a close. But if this flu season is like most others, we haven't seen anything yet — flu rates around here have a tendency to rise much higher in late February and March, and flu continues to spread in our communities well into spring.
