Sounds like we have a spike in flu in Eugene, OR:

In a widening flu outbreak, seven elderly Lane County residents have died of an influenza illness since mid-December, the county Health and Human Services department said Friday.
The department warned of an outbreak of the H1N1 and H3N2 viruses that killed the seven people and urged residents to be vaccinated against influenza.
Eleven separate influenza outbreaks have been reported in the past 30 days. Each outbreak — defined as a cluster of flu cases in a small geographic area — has the potential to sicken numerous people, as they move around while carrying the illness and infect others, Lane County Health and Human Services spokesman Jason Davis said. Six of the outbreaks, ¬including four of the deaths, have been reported in the past week.
.. The surge in flu cases ¬contributed to a record number of people visiting emergency rooms at area hospitals.
PeaceHealth last week alone treated 146 ¬patients with confirmed influenza at its Eugene, -Springfield, Cottage Grove and ¬Florence hospitals, a spokesperson said.
The Bay Area ¬Hospital in Coos Bay beginning ¬Friday required patients and physicians to wear masks because of a sharp rise in flu cases there.
