SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - With the omicron COVID variant being discussed by health officials and news agencies across the country, KTIV brought in a Siouxland doctor to discuss it.

KTIV’s Matt Breen was joined by Dr. David Ensz from MercyOne Siouxland Medical Center Thursday and asked the following questions about the variant.

  • Dr. Ensz, while little is known about the Omicron variant, what are you telling your patients who ask about contracting this variant?
  • What could help minimize the risk of contracting the omicron variant? Will either the vaccine or booster cover this variant?
  • What if a family has holiday travel planned over Christmas and New Year’s, what precautions should they take?
