IMPORTANT NOTE: West Community Services is NOT doing COVID-19 testing this week.

WMF was going to wait for this update until holiday numbers are calculated, but the backlog is causing a delay. Omnicron is here and spreading like wildfire. Get vaccinated. Get your booster. Wear a mask indoors around other people. More info in the links below. Follow the CDC guidelines.

"Across the Bay Area, signs now point to the current surge in coronavirus cases, driven by the highly infectious omicron variant, topping the peak in delta cases over the summer and becoming the region’s second worst wave of infection since the pandemic began.

And with a backlog of testing results from the Christmas weekend still being counted, the spike in new infections is expected to grow quickly.

Case rates in at least two Bay Area counties — San Francisco and Marin — have already crept past their delta zenith.

Still, in a state where more than 70% of people are fully vaccinated, hospitalizations remain relatively low, with about 4,400 people now hospitalized with COVID-19 compared to more than 8,700 in August during the delta surge.

But hospitalization numbers, even in the highly vaccinated Bay Area, are beginning to creep up, and it’s unclear when they might level off."
