Coronavirus Omnicron Variant Found In Massachusetts

December 5, 2021

The omnicron variant of coronavirus has been found in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

A woman in her 20s who lives in Middlesex County got it when traveling out of state, as CBS Boston reported late Saturday night, December 4. The woman is fully vaccinated against coronavirus and will not require hospitalization.

It’s unclear what kind of threat the variant poses to the Commonwealth. Early reports have suggested Omicron may be milder than previous strains of the virus.

“It’s going to take time, at least a couple of weeks to get a clearer picture of whether Omicron is more contagious, more dangerous, and more resistant to the vaccines,” CBS Boston’s Dr. Mallika Marshall told the station. “In the meantime, the best way to protect yourself against Omicron, Delta, or other COVID variants is to get vaccinated. And if you’re already vaccinated, get a booster.”
