Influenza activity has been increasing in South Australia over recent weeks, and the number of cases is likely to keep rising as we move further into the influenza season.

Residential care facilities are particularly susceptible to outbreaks of influenza, and the Communicable Disease Control Branch of SA Health has provided information for South Australian residential care services.

This information includes details on how to report any suspected influenza outbreaks to SA Health, where to go for further advice on managing influenza outbreaks, and links to relevant guidelines and resources.

A copy of the letter from SA Health to South Australian residential care facilities can be viewed here.
