Winter 2022 Resources & Opportunities (Vol. 2) – Husky Pawket Guide


Hi Huskies,

There are promising indications out of early omicron epicenters in the US that this COVID variant could begin to draw down sooner than later, and according to experts (including UW/IHME’s own Christopher Murray), there is reason to believe that emerging from the omicron outbreak could mark a meaningful turning point in the pandemic.

With a hopeful outlook but COVID certainly not yet behind us, it is important for us as a community to remain careful and smart right now as we work toward what looks to be a brighter horizon.
