According tomedia reports, even if the blockade has been relaxed, countries are trying to restore normality, but the new coronavirus isolation is still a necessary procedure. Separating people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 from patients who are being isolated at home can help reduce transmission and prevent new coronavirus infections with others. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its web page with new information about isolation and quarantine.
The CDC has now updated its quarantine guidelines. The agency says individuals isolated due to a possible COVID-19 infection should stay away from others until they have been confirmed to have no fever for at least 3 days, the symptoms have improved and 10 days have passed since the first symptoms first appeared.
WTHR has for the first time taken note of the CDC’s new guidelines. The new page states that people who tested positive for COVID-19 but did not have symptoms should be quarantined for 10 days after the first test. The CDC notes that in some cases, there may be retesting. In these cases, if people receive negative test results at least twice in 24 hours apart, they can be released from isolation. Patients with symptoms should also make sure they do not have a fever and other symptoms will improve.
The new quarantine and quarantine guidelines page also suggestthat people with weak immunity should seek medical guidance before leaving home for the first time. They may need to stay indoors for more than 10 days to ensure they are not infected. The CDC insists that anyone in close contact with COVID-19 should stay at home for 14 days after contact, in line with previous instructions.
The difference between quarantine and quarantine is simple. If people know they have been exposed to confirmed cases of COVID-19 and think they are at risk of contracting the disease, they are quarantined. If people start symptoms or test positive for COVID-19, you will isolate yourself from others. In fact, in both cases, people have to stay at home. The CDC has an information page that should help you understand both concepts.
