A new study from science has found that the highly contagious Omicron variant can not infect you if you stay safely under the covers, with a flashlight and reading some spooky stories.

While the spooky stories themselves may cause harm if you don’t check under the bed, omicron is incapable of penetrating the covers and getting near your spooky stories, especially in the dark where omicron is ineffective. Keeping the lights off will deter omicron away, and the additional protection of spooky stories will frighten it.

Side effects of spooky stories are still undetermined.
