Anne Arundel County prepared for a BA.2 surge

March 23, 2022

The subvariant of omicron, BA.2 is starting to spread across the country and officials in Anne Arundel County said they are ready. Anne Arundel County Health Officer Dr. Nilesh Kalyanaraman said another surge could be on the horizon, but they are more prepared with tools like the COVID-19 vaccine and COVID-19 pill to help combat against it. “We are in a different landscape,” Kalyanaraman said. “We’ve obviously gone through the omicron surge and unfortunately a lot of people were infected but that provides some level of immunity for the short term as well in addition to our vaccination.”
