CDC Issues Latest COVID-19 guidance

Printer-friendly version

The Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) has issued new COVID-19 guidance that includes recommending:

  • Those exposed to COVID, regardless of vaccine status, need not quarantine.  Instead – wear a high-quality mask for 10 days and get tested on day 5;
  • If a person tests positive for COVID-19, the person should stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others;
  • Regardless of vaccination status, isolation when sick and suspect COVID-19 infection but do not yet have test results;
  • No longer recommending testing of asymptomatic people, without known exposures, in most community settings.
