Tuesday, September 7 Update: Yavapai County reports 277 COVID-19 cases and 8 Deaths since Friday, September 3rd

The Mu variant was first discovered in Colombia in January, and has since spread to 40 countries and is now found in 49 states in the U.S.  The World Health Organization says it is mutated in a way that shows potential properties of immune escape, meaning it may have the ability to evade immunity from a previous COVID infection or vaccination. A “variant of interest” is not a “variant of concern”, which is a variant that has been proven to acquire one of those characteristics, making it more dangerous and so more consequential. Mu is being monitored closely to see if it should be re-designated as a variant of concern.

Mosquito Season is Here

With the first West Nile human Case in 2021 reported in Pinal County, Yavapai County Community Health Services (YCCHS) would like to remind everyone to protect themselves from mosquitos which will be more prevalent with monsoon season.

Monica Kriner, Environmental Health Unit Manager reports, “We have had lots of complaints about mosquitos this season, and what mosquitos the department has trapped are primarily floodwater mosquitoes. These mosquitoes are in abundance because of the increased rain we have had in the area.  These mosquitos don’t carry West Nile virus rather just a nuisance mosquito.  As far as West Nile virus testing there have been no positive tests this season in Yavapai County.”
