Welcome to the new on-line version of the Maryland Resident Influenza Tracking Survey (MRITS). MRITS is a system designed to measure influenza-like illness (ILI) in Maryland based on illness reported directly by residents each week. While most influenza surveillance systems rely heavily on information submitted by health care providers, MRITS allows those who might not contact their provider to offer complementary information to estimate the level of flu activity in the State.
