Stay safe and informed with Osmosis’s COVID-19 resources
- What is the treatment for COVID-19?Treatment is primarily focused on supporting individuals while their body fights the infection, and to reduce the patient’s symptoms
- COVID-19 for FamiliesCOVID-19 is an infection of the lungs and airways caused by a virus called “Novel Coronavirus.” It’s mostly transmitted by droplets of water and mucus from your nose or mouth.
- Emerging CoronavirusesEmerging diseases are illnesses that have increased in incidence during the past 20 years, or are expected to increase in the near future.
The Omicron variant continues to spread and circulate through the news. Therefore it is only logical that we revisit this topic as well.
There are a few important changes since the last time we talked about Omicron.
The symptoms are a bit different than pre-delta COVID-19 or the flu. Runny nose, sneezing, and sore throat are more common with Omicron. Fever and loss of smell are less common, while shortness of breath is a rare symptom.
Now, if you are exposed to the virus, but not fully vaccinated, you should quarantine for at least 5 days, and then get tested. If you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 there is no need to quarantine, just get tested after 5 days.
On the other hand, if you develop symptoms you should get tested right away or quarantine until you can get tested. If the test is positive, isolate for 5 days, and wear a mask for the next 10 days.
As always, don’t forget that we are all in this together, so please help keep yourself and the people around you safe by getting the vaccine and wearing a mask!
