The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced an update to quarantine guidelines, offering options for shorter quarantine periods.
The CDC’s updated guidance allows for the following quarantine periods for those who may have been exposed to COVID-19 but are without symptoms:
Ten-day quarantine period-An individual may end quarantine 10 days after exposure if the individual does not take a COVID-19 test.
- Seven-day quarantine period-An individual may end quarantine seven days after exposure if the individual tests negative for COVID-19.
While offering these shorter alternatives, the CDC still recommends a 14-day quarantine as the safest option.
- These updated quarantine guidelines come after the CDC studied the incubation period for COVID-19. The agency hopes that this shortened time period will improve compliance among the general public and lessen the negative economic impact of extended quarantine periods.
