CDC to shorten COVID-19 quarantine to 10 days, 7 with test

  • CDC to shorten quarantine period from 14 days to 7-10 days

But the CDC is now giving an official framework in order to "make some of the quarantine times more manageable", she said.

"They can't go out, they can't do a lot of other things, so it's a certain amount of hardship for people to stay in quarantine for 14 days", Dr. Marek Smieja, scientific director at McMaster HealthLabs, told CTV News.

Exposure means having close contact - generally less than 6 feet for at least 15 minutes, depending on the exposure - according to the Routt County Public Health Department. That could also mean multiple shorter periods of contact with a positive case.

It said it has established "appropriate safety requirements for all potential hazards involved in shipping the vaccine, including standards for dry ice and lithium batteries used in cooling". However, she stressed the incubation time of the virus remains the same at 14 days.

And although those who tested positive at 14 days could've caught COVID-19 on the plane and presented late, researchers pointed out that they could also have broken quarantine and become infected in the community. CNBC reports the CDC's Dr. Henry Walke outlined the two other options: Quarantine can cease after 10 days if no symptoms have surfaced, or after 7 days if the person is both experiencing no symptoms and has a negative COVID test. "The guidance is being changed at a federal level to encourage more people to get tested and encourage better compliance with quarantines".

The family added that his funeral would be a very private event, in accordance with his wishes. He recovered but was re-admitted in mid-November.

"In no circumstances would a quarantine be discontinued before seven days", Smith said.

New data on COVID-19 has refined CDC guidance on how long someone should quarantine for after exposure.

"December and January and February are gonna be rough times".

The number of people who have died due to the coronavirus in a single day in the United States has reached a new record as the country reported more than 2,700 deaths in the past 24 hours, the highest number since April.

But for those who ignore that advice, COVID-19 testing before and after trips is an option.
