Last week, I wrote here about how the CDC had changed its guidance on COVID-19 close contact. As a result, lots of state and local guidance became misaligned with the federal change.
But now they’re catching up.
For example, Sara Satullo at LehighValleyLive.com reports here that the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania would adopt the new CDC guidance for both close contact situations and out-of-state travelers.
- People who travel out of state should still quarantine. However, they need only quarantine for 10 days without testing or a 7-day quarantine with a negative test on or after day 5 of quarantine.
- Ditto for close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19; although, both PA and the CDC recommend a full 14-day quarantine for close contact.
So, take a moment now and check your state and local guidance for the latest local quarantine recommendations.
