Beaumont HouseCall Podcast: The Omicron Variant

Episode Overview

As COVID cases and hospitalizations decline around the country, you might get the feeling that omicron is behind us. But what does the data say? What can we learn from this most recent surge? And what comes next for us? Drs. Gilpin, Shajahan and Skrzynski answer these questions and much more.

 Let's not get complacent. Let's keep our foot on the gas. Let's make sure we are getting vaccinated and boosted if eligible. Let's wear those well-fitting face masks. Get tested and stay home if we aren't feeling well, and wash those hands often. Hopefully fewer surges and better days ahead if we all do our part. 

– Dr. Nick Gilpin
