Abstract

An outbreak of acute respiratory disease due to human adenovirus and a resulting increase in mortality occurred in a long-term care facility for the elderly. By use of viral culture and polymerase chain reaction, not a rapid antigen test, the virus was detected. Human adenovirus infection can occur in elderly individuals, but detection by rapid antigen testing may be limited.
