Several hours after Wednesday's announcement, the CDC had yet to update the official quarantine guidance posted on its website. We need to try to bend the curve, stop this exponential increase, " Walke continued.

"What you want are recommendations that are prudent and practical that people are going to follow", Gottlieb said Sunday.

The 14 days is still the "gold standard" for quarantine, said Routt County Public Health Director Roberta Smith during Wednesday's Board of Public Health meeting. However, she stressed the incubation time of the virus remains the same at 14 days. In July, the agency shortened the length of time it advised a person to stay in isolation after first experiencing COVID-19 symptoms - from 14 days to 10, provided the person is longer sick at that point. That could also mean multiple shorter periods of contact with a positive case.

A COVID-19 testing sign is displayed outside of the Elterman Centre for Women's and Men's Health in Skokie, Illinois. That risk drops to about 1% for those who quarantine for 10 days under the new guidance, with an upper limit of 10%, he said.

There's still some risk a person who left quarantine before 14 days could transmit the virus to others.

The CDC found that the two new types of quarantine led to a 1% and 5% risk of spreading the coronavirus to others, respectively. "This is a win all around".

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

Jennifer Nuzzo, an epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, also welcomed the revision in the CDC guideline, saying it will focus on the period in which most people exposed to the virus are most likely to become contagious.

"Unfortunately, we can very likely hit 3,000 deaths per day by the end of the year if we continue at the current trajectory... it's just a matter of weeks that deaths per day will cross the previous peak seen in April", Jagpreet Chhatwal, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, told Newsweek. Symptoms may not appear for many days or even two weeks, and in rare cases even longer.

About 90 percent of USA hospitals are in the red zone, the director said, adding "I do think unfortunately before we see February, we could be close to 450,000 Americans dead from this virus".
