In this week’s Los Alamos County COVID-19 Newsletter, issued November 14, William F. Athas, PhD and retired epidemiologist, writes in the “Epidemiology Corner” that the Omicron variants BQ.1 / BQ.1.1 dominate and other respiratory illnesses are rapidly rising. Further, the CDC has elevated the community level in Los Alamos to HIGH risk and there is a rising trend in reported cases accompanied by increasing emergency department visits. 

Los Alamos County officials remind individuals that the CDC recommends wearing a high-quality mask indoors or on public transportation, staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters, and testing if they have symptoms. Be advised that additional precautions may be required for several high-risk people.
