COVID-19 Delta Variant Hits Arkansas

CDC is closely tracking a new variant of the virus that causes COVID-19 called Delta, or B.1.617.2. There is evidence that this variant spreads easily from person to person.

The dangerous COVID-19 Delta variant, one of six emergent novel coronavirus strains circulating the globe, is quickly spreading in Arkansas. Experts warn this variant is the most infectious and deadly so far – especially for unvaccinated Arkansans.
