CDC Possibly Dropping COVID-19 Isolation Recommendations

The U.S. CDC plans to drop its five-day COVID-19 isolation recommendations under new guidance prepared by the agency, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

People with mild and improving symptoms would no longer need to stay home if they have been fever-free for at least 24 hours, the report said, citing CDC officials familiar with the matter, adding the new recommendations would not apply to hospitals and other healthcare settings with more vulnerable populations.

The report added that the government has yet to sign off on the guidelines the agency is expected to release in April for public feedback.
