Covid cases continue to rise, again.
Update: The CDC has ‘shortened’ the isolation and quarantine period from 10 to 5 days for people who test positive for COVID-19 but do not have any symptoms. He CDC is recommending asystematic people to wear masks around others for the remaining 5 days. NOTE: The CDC says the ‘update’ is based on scientific evidence that most transmission occurs early in the disease, right before and after the onset of symptoms. https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2021/december/cdc-recommends-shorter-covid-isolation-quarantine?utm_source
The latest data shows that omicron symptoms are predominantly cold-like symptoms — runny nose, headache, sore throat, and sneezing — so people should stay at home if sick. Health officials are urging us to wear masks indoors and to get vaccinated.
“The omicron variant of Covid-19 is two to three times as contagious as the delta variant, making it four to six times as contagious as the original COVID-19 virus.” Dr. Mandy Cohen
COVID-19 vaccines are available to everyone 5 and older.
