CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

December 20, 2021 -- The Omicron variant of COVID-19 is very new but so far appears far more transmissible than the Delta variant. Those vaccinated and boosters (Pfizer and Moderna) appear to be protected from serious illness. If you have not yet received a booster shot, please do so as soon as possible.

Omicron information from CDC

Rapid testing before a family gathering can protect vulnerable family members. The Ohio Public Health website has more information on rapid testing.

Hospitalization and deaths are rising across the United States, predominantly among the unvaccinated. The CDC recommends everyone take steps to slow the spread of COVID-19. Stay home if possible. Wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet apart, avoid crowds, and wash your hands often. The more steps you take, the more you are protected against COVID-19 and the more you protect those you love.
