Wyoming 2022-23 Influenza Season
The numbers in the reports do not represent a complete count of actual illnesses. These reports are part of an overall surveillance system that functions in an interdependent manner. The true levels of influenza and influenza-like illnesses are likely higher. Although influenza is a reportable disease in the State of Wyoming, not all healthcare providers report these results. Additionally, many ill individuals do not seek medical attention. Of those who do, many are not tested for influenza. Also, not every medical provider reports to the Wyoming Department of Health consistently in the same manner. Therefore, comparing reported cases of influenza from season to season or week to week may not be valid, because many factors influence both testing and reporting.
