When it comes to cases and strains, health officials in Rock County say they have identified two COVID-19 variants in recent tests.
The variants, which originated in South Africa and Brazil, spread more quickly then the original coronavirus strain. Rock County officials also warn that mutations of the variants could mean those who have had COVID-19 could be infected by the new strains.
And vaccination efforts continue. A new website aims to make it easier for people to find the COVID-19 vaccine.
The state Department of Health Services unveiled the new website today. It’s called Vaccine Finder and will replace the current map on the department’s website next month. The site will generate a list of all providers within the radius you choose. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO.
