This study describes the clinical features, severity, and outcomes in children <5 years of age with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection during an atypical summer surge during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Although timing was uncharacteristic, clinical features and illness severity were representative of a typical RSV season. Co-infection with SARS-CoV-2 was low.
