New Center for Disease Control Guidelines for Quarantine

(December 4, 2020) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released an update to their COVID-19 quarantine guidelines for those who have been exposed to the coronavirus.

While the gold standard for quarantine duration is 14 days, the CDC has sufficient data to support reducing quarantine periods to 10 or seven days depending on a negative test result and no sign of symptoms. For any resident who has been exposed, for most accurate results, Public Health advises they quarantine immediately and pursue a test no less than five days from their last potential exposure.
