CDC Shortens the Recommended COVID Isolation and Quarantine Period

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention changed the recommendations on the COVID isolation and quarantine periods. Now, a person who gets a positive test result for COVID-19 needs to stay isolated for 5 days instead of 10 days of the previous recommendation. However, it is void only for those who don’t have symptoms and wear a mask around other people.CDC Shortens the Recommended COVID Isolation and Quarantine Period

The CDC officials also shortened the quarantine period for people who were exposed to the virus. They also need to stay isolated only 5 days, if they are vaccinated. Moreover, those individuals who are fully vaccinated and boosted may not need to be quarantined at all.

The CDC statement says: “Given what we currently know about COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, CDC is shortening the recommended time for isolation from 10 days for people with COVID-19 to five days, if asymptomatic, followed by five days of wearing a mask when around others.”
