CDC cuts the recommended isolation period for people with COVID-19


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Monday shortened the recommended isolation time for laipeople infected with COVID-19 from 10 days to five if they are asymptomatic.

AP Reports: CDC says the updated guidance is in keeping with growing evidence that people with the coronavirus are most infectious in the two days before and three days after symptoms develop. The announcement comes as the nation is contending with a new coronavirus wave driven by the highly transmissible Omicron variant.

Editorial Note

The unredeemable fact about cutting isolation periods to five days IF a carrier is "asymptomatic": Asymptomatic does not mean the person is NOT A CARRIER to people with and without symptoms and also to those who are vaccinated and unvaccinated.

End Game: You're still not safe, even if the isolation period of 10 - 21 days is reinstated. 

Does it appear the CDC has given up and decided people are going to have to get over it themselves?

If so, why be vaccinated at all?

Vaccines have not stopped it, have not lessened the symptoms, and have not kept vaccinated persons any safer from any variant. Yet, they have killed a lot of people and made quite a few sick people even sicker.

That's not a rant against vaccines

That's a fact about using plain old good common sense ... if the nation's educational systems haven't beaten us out of what was left of it.

Take the vaccine, don't take it ... but don't have any expectations of the vaxx results that you didn't have before the Trump administration unleashed a plague on the land.
