CDC drops its 5 day COVID isolation rule

Pinch News

The CDC is updating its guidelines for COVID-19, dropping the 5-day isolation period for positive cases. Instead, they recommend staying home until symptoms improve and there’s no fever for 24 hours without medication. Additional precautions like wearing masks and improving ventilation are advised. Some criticize the change, while others see it as aligning with current realities. Hospitalizations and deaths have risen this winter, with the majority among those over 65 who haven’t received booster shots. Vaccination efforts, including spring COVID boosters for the elderly, are crucial to curbing the spread.
