WC)--The COVID-19 Delta variant is very contagious. Officials say the exact period when infected individuals are at their most contagious has remained unclear. Now, a new study is shedding some light on the matter. Boston University researchers report COVID-19 positive individuals are at their most contagious two days before and three days after symptoms appear. Additionally, the study also finds infected individuals are more likely to be asymptomatic if they contracted the coronavirus from a primary case (the first infected person in an outbreak) who also happens to be asymptomatic. Among those identified as primary cases, 89 percent went on to develop mild or moderate symptoms, while 11 percent were asymptomatic. No one developed severe symptoms. Asymptomatic individuals were much less likely to infect others than symptomatic individuals. And, even if an asymptomatic carrier did infect someone else, that person was less likely to experience any obvious symptoms themselves. The findings appear in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.

BW)--The Public Library of Enid and Garfield County has placed a temporary book walk at Champlin Park. The featured book is “The Lost Words,” written by Robert Macfarlane and illustrated by Jackie Morris. The book walk project is in partnership with Enid Parks and Recreation Department. Book pages are placed on panels along the park’s walking path. The path is fully accessible to strollers, wheelchairs and walkers. Visitors to the book walk will find 16 panels with acrostic poetry (poetry in which the first letter of each line spells a word) and an illustration on one side with a double spread illustration on the other. Each panel celebrates the beauty of language and nature. The book walk is expected to remain in place for one month through Sept. 27. Champlin Park is located at the corner of Garriott and Van Buren. For more information about this event and others, visit the library’s website at enid.okpls.org.
