Minnesota on Thursday reported its first omicron COVID-19 case, marking the second confirmed case of the new variant of concern in the U.S.
The Minnesota Department of Health detected the variant through its surveillance program among a resident who recently traveled domestically to New York City.
The article goes on to state the following:
The patient is a vaccinated adult male who developed now-resolved mild symptoms last week before getting tested. In the days before his symptoms emerged, the patient attended the Anime NYC 2021 convention. Health officials instructed the patient to isolate from others.
Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) announced on Twitter, “Today, Minnesota’s nation-leading testing network and detection program found a case of the Omicron variant in our state. This news is concerning, but it’s not a surprise. We know that this virus is highly infectious and moves quickly throughout the world.”
“Minnesotans know what to do to keep each other safe—get the vaccine, get tested, wear a mask indoors, and get a booster. Together, we can fight this virus and help keep each other safe,” Walz added.
