CDC Reduces COVID-19 Quarantine Requirement


The CDC reduced the length of quarantine required for persons exposed to someone infected with SARS-CoV-2 from 14 days to 10 or to 7 with a negative test.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Wednesday announced 2 shorter quarantine options for people exposed to COVID-19: 10 days without appearance of symptoms and 7 days if a diagnostic test is negative.

The revised options are based on review of new research and on an "acceptable risk" of transmission. Citing a desire to reduce the significant personal, social, and economic burden of the 14-day requirement, the agency also hopes the options will increase overall compliance and improve observance of public health recommendations.
