Omicron Update December 3, 2021: Residents with Exposure to a Confirmed or Suspect Case Should Get Tested for COVID-19. 

The New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) is notifying healthcare providers and public health partners that residents with a known or possible exposure to a confirmed or suspected Omicron case should get tested for COVID-19. Residents who attended the Anime NYC conference at the Javits Center in NYC during November 19-21 should get tested immediately, especially if experiencing symptoms, monitor for symptoms and seek medical help if needed. NJDOH is requesting that clinicians gather history of conference attendance as a possible exposure risk when patients present for care.
