  2. Cases of COVID-19 are up! why? What we’ve been seeing nationally, and also in Southern California, is an increase in cases,” said Dr. Cameron Kaiser, deputy public health officer for the County of San Diego. “What we’re trying to figure out is whether this is another arise of omicron, or something else. I know we certainly have plenty of omicron still circulating.” The number of cases in San Diego County are rising. The future is uncertain. “I know people are really tired of COVID. There’s a whole bunch of pandemic fatigue that’s set in, and that’s real, but that also doesn’t mean that it goes away,” said Dr. Kaiser. “The minute you let your guard down, you could be the next one. Just be careful and that’s the best takeaway message that people can have.” To learn more: Click into parenthesis, then click the link. (CBSNews8)
