COVID-19 Delta Variant
4 things to know about the Delta variant:
- COVID-19 continues to spread in the US and variants are circulating. The best way to protect yourself from the virus is to get a COVID-19 vaccine. If unvaccinated, continue to wear a mask and keep physical distance in public spaces
- It is normal for viruses to change through mutation. The Delta variant is considered a variant of concern and is one of four notable variants in the US
- The Delta variant spreads more easily from person to person than the original strain of COVID-19
- So far, studies suggest that current authorized vaccines protect against the circulating variants, including the Delta variant. Vaccines protect you from getting sick, needing to be hospitalized, and dying.
