Hello, Healthwise readers! I'm on my first vacation since the pandemic broke out. It's pretty smoky in northern Idaho, but the mountain biking is still very good, if a little dusty. I don't have much for you this week, but I am adding to the array of reporting on the Delta variant.

It's concerning to health officials, especially for unvaccinated populations. The more transmissible strain has the potential to rip through groups of people who are unvaccinated and not taking precautions. Local health officials say it could be devastating for businesses who are already short on workers if a small outbreak popped up in a staff group.

Have a great week, and let's hope I keep my bike upright the whole week! — Tom

P.S. I'd love to talk with folks who used the Mental Health JH program for a story I'm working on about it. If you don't want your name in the paper, that's fine; I'd still love to talk to you. If you would like to share your experience, give me a call at 503.830.8220.
