Omicron is officially stateside.
And it looks like it snuck in via California:

We’re glad that the patient didn’t experience severe symptoms.
But we can’t help but wonder how something like this could’ve happened. In California, of all places!

Can’t be true. Am constantly told this is prevented by Gavin Newsom’s awesome mandates and policies. Don’t they mean Florida? https://t.co/vP1l08G0gv

Surely they meant Florida. Why would Ron DeSantis do this?
Thanks a lot Governor Desantis! https://t.co/7dKm3FdSH5

He’s so sneaky, that guy.
Ban all travel from California immediately. Also the nuclear option has to be on the table. https://t.co/OFgHTQTTdx

On the table? Hell, it should be the freakin’ centerpiece.

Can never be too careful.
California is always infected with something, so 🤷♀️

Oh well. The good thing is that Joe Biden thought to enact a travel ban!
We knew it was already here but Biden went ahead with his racist Black ban anyways
