General acute care hospitals (GACH) must continue to submit daily COVID-19 and influenza data to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health Safety Network system until April 30, 2024, unless HHS specifies an earlier date. 

If your hospital has questions about this AFL, please contact the CDPH GACH Data Support team at
