The CDC updates COVID-19 Omicron recommendations
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website shows updated information for quarantine recommendations for the COVID-19 variant.
The website shows that anyone exposed to the COVID-19 Omicron variant needs to quarantine for five days.
If you are asymptomatic or symptoms resolve without fever after 24 hours of quarantine that should be followed by mask wearing for at least five days.
The change is motivated by scientific data that indicates that transmission occurs in the early stages of the illness.
Visit CDC.gov for more information and specifics on information for those that suffer from immune deficiencies.
