Tools to Mitigate the Threat of the Omicron Variant of Coronavirus Disease 2019 in the Department of Defense
United States. Department of Defense
From the Document: "This memorandum provides an update on tools to mitigate the threat of the Omicron variant of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-I9) in the DoD. The Omicron variant of the SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] virus, which causes COVID-19, was first reported to the World Health Organization on November 24, 2021. Even though much remains unknown about the new variant, evidence suggests that it is more transmissible than previous COVID-l9 variants. Even if the Omicron variant proves to be milder than other COVID-I9 variants, its transmissibility has the ability to overwhelm our health care systems and impact the operational readiness of our Forces. While the Omicron variant's characteristics may differ from other variants, the tools that we have successfully used throughout the pandemic, such as masking, physical distancing, teleworking, testing, and vaccination, remain effective and must be continuously implemented."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
