December 16, 2021

The Omicron variant of Covid-19 has been confirmed in the Lehigh Valley by St. Luke’s University Health Network.


St. Luke’s confirmed two cases Thursday. At least 30 other cases are suspicious and under review and likely account for a portion of recent breakthrough cases.


“This is another reason to strongly consider getting a booster shot, or to be immunized if you haven’t already,” said Jeffrey Jahre, MD, St. Luke’s Senior Vice President of Medical & Academic Affairs and Section Chief Emeritus of Infectious Diseases.
