COVID-19 Update; Wellscape closed for Patriot’s/Marathon Day
Uptick in Omicron variant
Unfortunately, there has been an uptick in cases from the Omicron variant BA.2. Due to less testing overall and more testing at home (often not reported), we don’t have good data on the number of new cases. We do know that being fully vaccinated and boosted still protects against severe disease, hospitalization, and death. That being said, those who I know who have gotten it have been quite sick at home, like a bad flu. So do be mindful of this when planning activities and events.
CDC Website for COVID-19 Information
Just a reminder about the CDC website that covers a lot of basic information about COVID-19, including the level of infections in your county, vaccinations, testing, treatments, travel, and algorithms to determine quarantine and isolation. It’s easy to remember, too: covid.gov
