COVID Variants Confirmed in Barron County

On April 28, Barron County Public Health was alerted that cases of the COVID-19 variant, B.1.351 (South African variant) were confirmed in the county. Scientists are working to learn more about these variants to better understand how easily they are spread and the effectiveness of the currently authorized vaccines against them.  “Even though our daily numbers have stayed fairly low, it’s important for everyone to remember there is still a risk,” said Health Officer Laura Sauve. “These variants are causing major issues and shutdowns in our neighboring states. It’s still important to wear our masks, wash our hands and do whatever we can to avoid the spread of this disease. The most important thing everyone can do right now is get their vaccine.”
