The incubation period for COVID is dependent upon the variant AND can vary from person to person.

Recent studies are showing that the incubation period for the Omicron variant (the most dominant strain in the US) is shorter than the previous variants, ranging from one to 14 days. However, researchers believe the average incubation period for Omicron is about four days.
