  1. At least this strain is less dangerous. Maybe that is why nothing has been said. Because it now acts like the flu or the cold.

    1. Your gal AOC was living it up in Free Florida without a mask. But I guess rules don’t apply to her?

  2. Big deal. Case counts don’t mean jack anymore. Hospitalizations and deaths are the real metrics, which are 2-3 LOWER than with Delta. Nearly everyone who is getting tested is coming back positive. At this point, masks ain’t gonna help “slow the spread” or do anything for that matter. The omicron variant is rampant at this point, there is no stopping it, everyone will get it, which has been likened to a common cold/flu. Time to move on.
