Nationally, the CDC reported 17 flu deaths among children last week, bringing the total pediatric deaths to 114.
Wyoming remains one of several states with high and widespread flu activity, according to Kim Deti, spokeswoman for the Department of Health.
"We are clearly on the downturn, by all indicators", he said.
Brown says because this flu season has been particularly bad, it may help spur changes and developments in making better flu vaccines.
The number of flu cases reported during the week leading up to Saturday was less than the half number reported at the peak.

"While we believe that flu season has peaked for us in DE, flu is still widespread and at high levels in our state, and will likely continue to circulate for weeks to come", said DPH Director Dr. Karyl Rattay in a written announcement of the deaths. "We strongly encourage everyone to continue practicing the important preventive measures we have been promoting including staying home when you're sick, calling your doctor at the first signs of flu-like illness, washing your hands frequently, and covering coughs and sneezes".
Locally, officials haven't found this flu season to be much different from past flu seasons. "There still is a lot of flu out there", Dr. Alicia Fry, who works in the influenza division at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Friday, according to NPR.
By mid-February the Department of Health started to see a decline in the number of flu cases in Wyoming, but it's too soon to know for certain whether the flu has peaked statewide, Deti said. RSV causes bad cold-like symptoms and can be serious for babies. Since October, 23,324 people have been hospitalized for influenza-associated complications.
Because the Department of Health can't estimate when the flu season will end, it still recommends that those who aren't vaccinated get a flu shot as soon as possible.
It appears the flu season peaked a couple weeks ago in MI.
