US CDC Drops Testing and Quarantine Recommendations for COVID-19

Healthcare

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has dropped its COVID-19 guidelines, with dropping the recommendation that the people of the United States, if they come in close contact with someone infected by the COVID-19 virus.

US CDC also said people will no longer need to stay at least six feet away from others. The changes are also driven by a recognition that over 2.5 years since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, with an estimated 95 percent of the US citizens above 16 years have acquired some level of immunity, from being infected or vaccinated.

Greta Massetti, an author of US CDC’s guidelines, said the current conditions of this pandemic have been very different from the conditions of the past two years. The recommendations of US CDC apply to everyone in the United States, but the changes can particularly be important for the schools, which resume classes in several parts of the country.

The US CDC also dropped a test-to-stay recommendation, which said the students exposed to COVID-19 can test regularly, instead of quarantining themselves at home, and to keep attending school. The CDC said with no quarantine recommendation anymore, the option for testing has been disappeared too.
