Just when things have started to improve, another variant of COVID-19 is hitting. I am sure if you have paid attention to all of them you are aware that the Omicron strain of the Coronavirus is spreading like wildfire across Oklahoma. With all the travel and vacation get-togethers, health experts are worried about the recent increase in the number of new cases.
Obviously, the new Omicron variant of COVID-19 is incredibly contagious, more than any other variant or even the original Coronavirus. From what we’re hearing, the only good news is that Omicron’s symptoms aren’t as severe. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take it seriously, especially if you have other health issues or a weakened immune system. Although less serious, it has caused hospitalizations and deaths.
If you’ve been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or has symptoms such as cough, fever, sore throat, congestion, or any other flu / cold-like condition, you should get tested. Today the CCHD (Comanche County Health Department) will organize a drive-thru test clinic Comanche County Fairground Exhibition Building located at 920 S. Sheridan Road until 4:00 p.m. this afternoon.
If you can’t get tested today, the CCHD has just announced that it will be extending its hours of operation on certain dates to allow for additional tests and vaccinations. Along with this, I’m sure the CCHD will be running more drive-thru and pop-up clinics in the near future as well. To stay up to date with all the latest news and future clinics, check out their official Facebook page for all the latest. For more information on the drive-through clinic and extended hours of operation of the CCHD, see the official press release below:
