Long-term care facilities are required to report all influenza-like clusters or outbreaks and should report any other respiratory outbreaks to the local public health department or to DHHS. For more information on how to report influenza-like clusters or outbreaks, please refer to our Respiratory Infection Outbreak Protocol.

In long-term care facilities, flu outbreaks can happen. To prevent outbreaks, all long-term care facility residents and healthcare staff should be vaccinated against influenza.
