As cases of omicron continue to surge, and healthcare workers deal with the impact of crowded hospitals, U-S Senator Tina Smith is reminding Minnesotans…

“The good news is that the omicron variant, most people less sick and of course, if you are vaccinated and boosted, which everybody should do, you are much less likely to get so sick that you require hospitalization or that even worse would happen.”

Senator Smith is also encouraging you to wear N-95 masks, which she says is helpful in stopping the spread of the virus.
