CDC reduces quarantine days from 14 to 7-10

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reducing the number of days one should quarantine after being exposed to the coronavirus from 14 days to between seven and 10 days.

Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the CDC, made the announcement during a White House coronavirus task force meeting Tuesday.

Redfield informed Vice President Mike Pence and the task force that the CDC will be issuing new guidance on the number of days that a person who has been in direct contact with the COVID-19 virus should quarantine “soon,” reports CNN.

The new guidelines recommend that someone who has been exposed or has had close contact with the virus should quarantine for seven to 10 days, which is less than the originally recommended 14 days.
