KDHE MONITORS OMICRON VARIANT

John AndersonNovember 29, 2021

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) announced Monday afternoon it is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 variant Omicron. KDHE said no confirmed cases have been identified in Kansas or the United States to date. The health department said this variant is new, and it is still unknown how transmissible or contagious this variant is.  “It is unclear how quickly it will spread, but it has been found in 17 countries already and we should assume that it is only a matter of time before it will be found in the United States. KDHE will continue to sequence positive COVID-19 samples to look for the Omicron variant.
