STUART, Fla. — Tourism leaders from the Palm Beaches to the Treasure Coast are closing watching the omicron variant of COVID-19 this winter.
There are currently no confirmed cases of the variant in the United States, advisers with the White House COVID-19 Response Team said Tuesday.
Despite this good news, many health experts fear this new strain could already be in the U.S.
Dutch health authorities
said Tuesday that omicron was already in the Netherlands when South Africa alerted the World Health Organization about it last week.
