New York City recorded three more cases of Covid-19’s omicron variant, and Massachusetts reported its first variant infection in a young woman who had traveled out of state. At least 12 U.S. states are now reporting omicron cases. 

Rio de Janeiro’s mayor said he’s canceling New Year’s Eve celebrations, the latest case of the variant putting a damper on the holiday season. Omicron cases linked to a corporate Christmas party in Oslo may rise to as many as 100, a Norwegian broadcaster reported.
