Missouri Doctor Shares Info About New Coronavirus Variant

The World Health Organization has labeled a new coronavirus variant a variant of concern. Omicron (pronounced awme-crawn) was first detected in South Africa. MU Health Care COVID-19 vaccine co-chair, Doctor Laura Morris, says she expects Omicron to eventually make its way to Missouri. During a call with reporters, she says people’s behaviors should be shaped by what is going on in their communities.

Morris says Missourians should still be making good decisions about masking, vaccinating, testing, and the activities you choose to participate in.
