The CDC says those exposed to COVID don't necessarily need to quarantine.

The CDC has announced major changes to their guidelines for those exposed to COVID-19.

If you’ve been exposed to COVID-19, the CDC says you won’t have to quarantine anymore.

The health agency also announced Thursday that they are ending many of their recommendations.

If you have been exposed, the CDC now recommends you wear a high-quality mask for ten days instead of going into quarantine, but that you get tested on the fifth day. 

Whether you are vaccinated or not, you are still being told to isolate from others if you test positive.  Stay home for five days, then when you test negative, you can remove your mask.

The CDC also says another change means that  people no longer have to stay six feet away from each other. Health experts say 95% of Americans 16 and older, now have some level of immunity.
