CDC shortens quarantine days for COVID-19

By: Judy Mathias

Editor's Note

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on December 2 changed its recommended quarantine period for people who have come in contact with COVID-19 positive individuals.

Instead of the standard 14 days, the CDC now allows individuals who have come in contact with someone infected with the virus to resume normal activity after 10 days, or 7 days if they receive a negative COVID-19 test result.

The CDC says the shorter quarantine periods are based on analysis of new research and data.
