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.
