Flu Season at Cooper Has Officially Ended

As a result of surveillance activities conducted by the CDC and the very few Cooper patients infected with influenza, our Infection Prevention team declared June 13, 2022, as the end of the 2021-2022 influenza season for our health system.

All patients admitted to the hospital will still be COVID-19 tested in an effort to prevent transmission of the virus. Patients admitted with COVID-19 symptoms will no longer be automatically tested for influenza, unless it is suspected by a provider.

The current influenza vaccine will no longer be offered to patients or team members until the new vaccine is available in the fall for the 2022-2023 flu season. The current COVID-19 universal masking policy for employees, visitors, and patients at all Cooper University Health Care locations will remain in effect.

Thank you for your diligence in keeping our patients, visitors, and team members safe.
