The Latest on Omicron and Fertility

COVID-19 Omicron Updates and Fertility Treatment

There's been a lot of talk the past few months about the latest strain of COVID-19, the Omicron variant. It has spread fast, but the worst may be behind us as Omicron cases are finally beginning to drop after unprecedented surges earlier at the start of 2022.

The team at NOVA IVF  understand the concerns and stress of our patients surrounding the periodic updates of COVID-19 and the newest strains. We strive to keep our patients informed of any and all changes that potentially can affect the health and care of our patients.

Here are the latest details on the Omicron strain and ways to reduce your risk of contracting COVID-19 while pursuing your fertility treatment.

Here's What We Know About This Variant

What You Can Do To Protect Yourself

We recommend that you continue to follow the CDC guidelines to continue to protect yourself from COVID-19:

  1. Continue to wear your mask when you expect to be within six feet of other individuals. We can't always predict how busy places will be, so we encourage you to err on the side of caution when wearing a mask. At this time masks are also required at all appointments.
  2. When you can, keep your distance from others and try to utilize the six-foot rule.
  3. Follow the CDC guidelines for getting vaccinated. In addition to the original two-part vaccination, it is also recommended to keep up to date with the current booster recommendations. 

While it is still possible to contract COVID-19—even while following these cautious measures—it does greatly reduce your risks.

The end of this pandemic may be in sight, but it’s no time to let our guards down! Let’s continue to act in a socially responsible way by masking, distancing, and getting vaccinated/boosted!
