Influenza Season Update

Influenza activity has calmed down over the last few weeks, but OHSU is still keeping a watchful eye out for late season stragglers.  For more information on influenza and other respiratory viruses, please visit our Influenza/RSV page.


OHSU has refined the criteria to discontinue isolation for patients previously identified as being MRSA positive.  Visit our MRSA page for detailed information and education about this policy and keeping our patients safe from MRSA.
