Omicron variant dominates statewide infections
January 13, 2022
The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) announced last week that Omicron has quickly become the most common variant of COVID-19 causing new infections in Wyoming.
This has been determined, according to State Health Officer Dr. Alexia Harrist, through variant sequencing and estimates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
“We are currently seeing big jumps in Wyoming’s case counts again, likely due to the Omicron variant. This is again not like the COVID-19 we have become familiar with because it spreads much more easily between people,” Harrist said in a press release.
