The delta variant is making its way to becoming the dominant strain of the coronavirus in the United States, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention[CDC] data. The variant was first detected in India and is quickly spreading across the world.
Although the delta variant hasn’t been detected in Montgomery County, local public health leaders urge residents who remain unvaccinated to get vaccinated.
During a virtual media briefing on Wednesday, Office of Emergency Management Director Dr. Earl Stoddard explained how high vaccination rates could create less of a concern for transmission.
