CMU COVID-19 UpdateAs anticipated, with the arrival of the BA.2 subvariant and its high transmissibility, there has been an uptick in COVID-19 cases nationally, locally and within the CMU community. Given our highly vaccinated and boosted CMU community, the cases we are seeing generally range from asymptomatic to mild. As we have communicated previously, cases are no longer the critical metric, and we are increasingly focused on the severity of outcomes and the availability of medical care.
