The fall in COVID-19 cases across much of the world over the past ten weeks signals a new dawn in the fight against the disease. Vaccines are proving effective and rapidly scaling, bending the curve in many geographies. This is a fragile dawn, however, with transmission and deaths still high, unequal access to vaccines, and variants of concern threatening to undo progress to date.
What should I do if I’ve been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19 if my vaccine is not up-to-date?
Stay home and quarantine for at least 5 full days. Wear a well-fitted mask if you must be around others in your home. Do not travel. Even if you don’t develop symptoms, get tested at least 5 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19.
Most ASU students who test positive are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms. 50 known positives among our student body of 70,691 , which is 0.07% confirmed positive. That compares with 17 in our last update.One known case living on ASU campus in Tempe; 3 cases involve students on other ASU campuses. The original Omicron variant, and the BA.2 subvariant of Omicron are the dominant strains of the virus in Arizona. These strains are more easily spread than prior variants while displaying a lower individual risk of severe outcomes, particularly for those who follow CDC guidance for vaccination and boosters. There is no cost to health care providers for COVID-19 vaccines received from the federal government, therefore, providers are expected to submit a claim for only vaccine administration to the individual’s health plan for payment.

Community testing sites had lines so long they snarled traffic. Schools that offered Northshore testing to symptomatic students, families and staff had sick people wandering hallways. So many people needed testing that Northshore testers couldn’t keep up. But before a contact tracer could call, parents would learn from the testing company that their children’s PCR tests, typically the gold standard of COVID-19 testing, were negative, even for students with symptoms. Kerwin investigated and learned the University of Nevada Reno campus was seeing similarly conflicting results. A state mandate required unvaccinated or traveling athletes to get tested weekly.

You can view the platform at dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/variants-data. The new platform is similar in style and content to the CDC’s variant dashboard, and the data shown is collected by the CDC’s national SARS-CoV-2 genomic surveillance program. Novartis is working to ensure supply of our medicines, enhance virtual services, protect the integrity of clinical trials and support patient organizations during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. As of March 2022, Coloradans can use the federal Test to Treat program to seek both testing and antiviral treatment.
On Monday, September 21, the CDC abruptly reverted to its previous guidance about how the virus is transmitted, removing language about airborne transmission. The IAFF believes there is enough evidence to support the latest claims that COVID-19 may be spread through respiratory droplets or small particles such as aerosols, and we have updated our COVID-19 facts with this information. Our position is supported by 239 scientists who sent a letter to the World Health Organization in July 2020 stating these findings. Masks are still required in New York state for health care facilities, nursing homes, courts, correctional facilities, homeless shelters, public transportation, and taxis and ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft.
