SpaceX headquarters reports 132 COVID-19 cases

The omicron variant has apparently made some inroads at SpaceX’s Southern California headquarters, as it has in much of the rest of the country.

SpaceX has reported 132 recent positive COVID-19 tests at its rocket factory near Los Angeles, according to a report published on Monday (Dec. 20) by the LA County Department of Public Health (LACDPH). That’s more than one-quarter of the total number of recent reported workplace COVID positives in the county, which stands at 496.
