The first cases of the COVID-19 Omicron variant have been confirmed in the Lehigh Valley by St. Luke’s University Health Network. WDIY’s Mike Flynn has more.

St. Luke’s confirmed two cases Thursday, and said at least 30 other cases are suspicious and under review.

Public radio and, in particular, NPR news helped him tremendously as a history teacher at Emmaus High School. Now retired, he wants to help the station that helped him. He feels honored to be able to share what he calls a treasure with his community.
