COVID-19 Prevention and Response
 
As you may be aware, over the Thanksgiving weekend, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced a new Variant of Concern (VOC), referred to as Omicron (a Greek letter used to simplify variant designation). This announcement was based on the detection of the variant in several countries around the world. A VOC is a variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus for which there may be evidence of increased transmissibility, more severe disease, or a reduction in the effectiveness of treatments or vaccines. There is a great deal that is not known about Omicron right now. Scientists around the world are working to understand this new variant. As we know more, we will update the community. In the meantime, it is more important than ever for everyone to practice the layered prevention strategies we’ve all learned – get vaccinated, wear a mask whenever you are indoors with members of another household or in public, stay home if you are sick, and get tested if you believe you’ve been exposed to COVID-19.
