Beaumont HouseCall Podcast: The Omicron Variant
 

Episode Overview

Summer is here and unfortunately so is a rise of COVID cases and community transmission throughout Michigan, the U.S. and the world. What does this mean for your summer plans and how do we continue to move forward in the safest way possible? Drs. Gilpin and Skrzynski break it all down in our latest COVID-19 Update.


 We may be done with COVID, but COVID is not done with us. As the virus continues to adapt, we also need to adapt. This means keeping an eye on what's going on in our community and paying attention to our individual risk factors. Masks, vaccines, and all the things we've discussed remain the best way to keep yourself and your family safe from COVID. 

– Dr. Nick Gilpin
