After originally posting their new guidelines for quarantine from ten days to five, the CDC, without fanfare, edited the guidelines again this week to add: you can exit quarantine if “symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours)”…
Sceince? What science?
Originally, it said IF THEY ARE ASYMPTOMATIC. It didn’t say anything about symptoms resolving without fever for 24 hours.
THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS NOW
CDC Updates and Shortens Recommended Isolation and Quarantine Period for General Population
For Immediate Release: Monday, December 27, 2021
Contact: Media Relations
Given what we currently know about COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, CDC is shortening the recommended time for isolation for the public. People with COVID-19 should isolate for 5 days and if they are asymptomatic or their symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours), follow that by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others to minimize the risk of infecting people they encounter. The change is motivated by science demonstrating that the majority of SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days prior to onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after.
The fact is there are nearly half a million people who have COVID. That affects the workforce significantly in an election year. They are not following the science. They are following the economy, and they don’t want their mandates and people out of work to be blamed for the catastrophic results.
These people were never influenced by our health, in our humble opinion. They could care less or they wouldn’t let millions of unvaccinated people flood in and take US jobs. Their motives are very suspect.
