CHICAGO – The Chicago Tribune is reporting the first Omicron case in Chicago as being in person fully vaccinated. 

Illinois’ first confirmed case of the omicron variant has been detected in a Chicago resident who was fully vaccinated and had received his or her booster dose. That person is a known contact of a confirmed case from another state who visited Chicago. 

That person “did not require hospitalization, is improving and has been self-isolating since their symptoms began,” the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Chicago Department of Public Health said in a joint press release. “Public health officials continue to perform contact tracing. Additional information about the individual is not available to protect their identity and protected health information.”
