COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

The omicron variant of the coronavirus has been found in a person in Minnesota who recently traveled to New York City last month.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul made the announcement in an online news conference Thursday morning.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a statement that it is working with Minnesota and New York City health officials to investigate the case. The infected person developed mild symptoms on Nov. 22 and sought testing two days later, the CDC said in a statement. That person has since recovered.

The positive patient had traveled to New York City from Nov. 19-21 for the Anime NYC 2021 convention at the Javits Center.

The man who contracted the variant had been vaccinated, Minnesota health officials said in a news release.
