COVID-19 Variants

Viruses constantly change and a variant is a new form of a virus. Several COVID-19 variants have been found in the United States. These variants have been identified in Nebraska through special testing at the Nebraska Public Health Laboratory.

Total number of variants in Lancaster County: 184

  • B.1.427/B.1.429 – first identified in California, 21 cases
  • B.1.1.7 – first identified in the U.K., 144 cases
  • B.1.1.318 – first identified in the U.K., 1 case
  • B.1.351 – first identified in South Africa, 7 cases
  • B.1.617 – first identified in India, 9 cases
  • P.1 – first identified in Brazil, 2 cases

Variants can spread more easily and quickly and they can lead to more cases of COVID-19. It’s critical to continue to take preventive actions to control the spread of COVID-19 and its variants in our community, which includes getting the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it’s available to you.

Data so far suggests the current vaccines should still provide protection against variants, although research is ongoing. Health officials strongly encourage residents to take these preventive actions to help slow the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wear a mask.
  • Watch your distance and stay at least six feet away from others.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Stay home if you’re sick.
  • Avoid crowded places, close contact and confined spaces.
  • Get vaccinated as soon as the COVID-19 vaccine is available to you.
