What you should know about the Delta variant

Viruses are always changing, often evolving into a new strain, or variant, of the virus. ‘Delta’ is one of many variants of the COVID-19 virus but has raised concerns, in part, because of its ability to spread so rapidly. While the medical community and public health officials will continue to learn more about the Delta variant, here is what we do know.
