CDC relaxes guidelines for some who are exposed to viruses

-

WASHINGTON – The head of the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday that key workers who are asymptomatic after exposure to a confirmed or suspected coronavirus case may, however, wear face masks and take other precautions .

CDC director Robert Redfield described new CDC guidelines at a White House press conference to accelerate the return of workers in key sectors such as healthcare.

Following the previous instructions, these workers were advised to stay at home for 14 days if they were exposed to confirmed or suspected coronavirus cases.

The new guidelines state that workers who are asymptomatic may be able to return to work if they measure their temperatures and wear face masks and practice social distancing at work, Redfield told a press conference at the White House.

“We don’t want them to share items that would touch their faces, and we don’t want them to gather in break rooms, lunch tables, and crowded places,” he said.
