RICHMOND (AP) -- Flu activity has declined in Virginia, but it remains widespread.

The most recent state flu surveillance report shows less than 4 percent of outpatient visits were for flu-like illness. That's down from 7 percent to 10 percent of outpatient visits about six weeks ago.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that flu activity has been widespread in Virginia for nine weeks.
