COVID-19 continues to impact communities in the four states region, nationally and globally at this time. The Delta variant is considered the major contributor to the current rise in cases. Another mutation, the “Mu” is rumored to be in 49 states at this time. There is no concrete information about Mu at this time; however, some within the medical community suspect that Mu may be vaccine-resistant. Further details will be released as cases are reviewed.
