USA. CDC Director Says Update on 10-Day COVID Isolation Guideline Could Come “Soon”

Read Time:50 Seconds

December 22. Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said that the agency is looking at data to see if it will ease the CDC’s current COVID-19 isolation guidelines.

According to the CDC guidelines, those who test positive, regardless of vaccination status, must isolate for 10 days.
If a person believes they have been in close contact with someone who has COVID and is unvaccinated, they should stay home and away from others while they watch for symptoms for at least 14 days.

It is unclear when the CDC will have any update on its isolation guidelines and whether it will impact those who are vaccinated.

This comes after Britain shortened its isolation period from 10 days to seven, with a negative test on the 6th day, after coming under pressure from businesses struggling with staff shortages. The government said the rule change would enable some people who would otherwise have been stuck in isolation to spend Christmas with their loved ones.
