The following statement can be attributed to Nicole Dupuis, Chief Executive Officer at the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU):

“This morning the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit reported that the Omicron variant of COVID-19 has been detected in a resident of Windsor and Essex County. The emergence of Omicron serves as a reminder of how quickly things continue to change during the pandemic. As we fully expect Omicron will become the dominant strain of COVID-19 in the coming weeks the importance of getting vaccinated with first, second, or third doses as soon as possible cannot be over-emphasized. If you have not been fully vaccinated, please do so as soon as possible. If you are eligible for a booster dose, please book your appointment as soon as possible to provide yourself with this extra layer of protection.”
