America cuts the quarantine period for people with corona in half

The US health authorities announce that they have reduced the quarantine period for people infected with the Corona virus who do not show symptoms of the disease by half, that is, from 10 to 5 days.

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reduced the isolation period for those who have not been vaccinated against the Corona virus

The US health authorities announced that they had reduced the quarantine period for people infected with the Corona virus who did not show symptoms of the disease in half, that is, from 10 to 5 days, and also reduced the period of sanitary isolation for those in contact with the infected.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the main health agency in the United States, said that “this change is scientifically justified,” noting that “the majority of infections occur within a day or two before symptoms appear and two or three days after their appearance.” .

The CDC advised people with corona who do not show symptoms to wear masks for the five days following their discovery of infection with the virus.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also reduced the period of sanitary isolation for those who are not vaccinated against Corona and who are proven to have been in contact with people infected with the virus, from 14 days to 5 days, provided that they commit to wearing a protective mask throughout the five days of isolation if they are not alone. As for those vaccinated against the virus, there is no need for them to adhere to sanitary isolation.

The recommendations issued by the CDC are considered a reference standard and are widely followed in the United States, although they are not binding at the federal level.

“These updates allow everyone to continue their daily lives in a safe manner,” said Centers Director Rochelle Walinsky.
