Mayo Clinic doctors said March 27 in a virtual news conference that a new strain of the virus that causes COVID-19 probably won’t result in as big a wave of cases as the original omicron variant, but they say communities still need to stay alert.

The warning comes on the heels of Bayfield County Public Health announcing that all 72 Wisconsin counties — Barron County included — are at low-level risk for COVID-19. Residents in low-level risk communities are urged to stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and get tested if exhibiting symptoms.
