Poll: Has the Omicron variant impacted your holiday travel plans?

Has the spread of the COVID-19 Omicron variant affected your holiday plans?

The Omicron variant accounts for 73% of new coronavirus infections, federal officials said last week. In Alexandria, the city saw roughly 800 new reported cases within a week, though some of that comes from record-high levels of COVID testing ahead of the holidays.

For families with children that travel, ACPS is asking that they get tested after returning — though finding tests has become increasingly challenging.
