The omicron variant threw life in these United States into further disarray this week, and San Antonio certainly had its share of virus-related turmoil.

Among the Current's most-read stories of the week were yarns about San Antonio ISD offering substitutes $200 a day to offset a shortage in teachers and Northside ISD dealing with a wave of teachers calling in sick. Meanwhile, FEMA is opening COVID testing sites in SA and other Texas cities, and local health officials are warning folks to be on the lookout for fake testing locations.
