About RSV - We are not tracking outbreaks, but rather RSV co-infections during a COVID-19 or influenza outbreak.
Once you submit this form at the start of an outbreak, the Chester County Health Department will reach out to you.
The outbreak is considered OVER if it has been 14 days since the last COVID-19 case or the last influenza case (using the symptom onset date or test date as the first day).
When the outbreak is closed, please complete the Respiratory Illness Outbreak Final Report Form on our website.
