CDC announces shortened quarantine guidance
Last week, the CDC announced updated quarantine guidance for those who test positive for COVID-19. If a person tests positive and they are either asymptomatic or their symptoms are resolving (fever-free for 24 hours), they only need to quarantine for 5 days. However, they should wear a well-fitting mask in any public space for the subsequent 5 days. This new guidance comes as data shows that people are most contagious one to two days prior to onset of symptoms and the two to three days after. The CDC has posted guidance on its website, including what to do if exposed to COVID-19.
