The Omicron variant has not been found in Oklahoma as of this recording, though state health officials are certain it’s already spreading here. 

The variant has the potential to cripple hospitals if health officials are right about its extreme transmissibility, and it’s hitting the country right before millions plan to gather for the holidays.

On today’s Listen Frontier Podcast, I talk with Tulsa County Health Department Director Bruce Dart about the Omicron variant – What we know about it and what we don’t, and what you can and should do to keep yourselves safe over the holidays.
