In order to stay safe and help stop the spread of COVID-19, thoroughly wash your hands, clean commonly touched surfaces, cover your sneezes/coughs in private, and wear a mask and stay 6 feet away from others in public.
All viruses mutate, or change, over time. The longer a virus sticks around, the more time it has to change. When a virus changes, it is called a variant. Many variants are no more harmful than the original virus, however, some can be more infectious or deadly. When our bodies are faced with a new variant, our immune responses built from vaccination or a previous infection may be able to fight it off. The sooner people get vaccinated against COVID-19, the less opportunity we give the virus to keep mutating.
Currently, the Delta variant is the predominant strain of COVID-19 in Wisconsin. It is more contagious than any other strain of the virus, and it may cause more severe illness. Unvaccinated people are at especially high risk from the Delta variant. Vaccination, mask wearing, and social distancing are the most effective ways to fight the Delta variant.
Quarantine or isolation: What's the difference?
When you visit friends & family who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, take these important steps. Wear cloth face coverings. Stay 6 at least feet apart. Meet outside if possible. Wash your hands often. Sanitize all touched surfaces.
