The Omicron variant has taken the world by storm, featuring strongly in the United States by way of case numbers. The CDC has just issued altered recommendations for quarantine- 5 days instead of 7 instead of 10. It is important to understand that this applies to asymptomatic persons who have been diagnosed with COVID. Truly, these parameters really apply to the vaccinated, by the supporting evidence, but the recommendations are not being presented in this manner, so we will put this by the side for the moment. Please also understand that the guidelines also include continued mask wearing, hand-washing, etc.
We will get through this.
Be well, all.
