New CDC guidelines to reduce quarantine time

The CDC recently revised their guidance, and as a result, the agency has adjusted ours as well.  The recommended quarantine period for an individual with a close contact exposure has moved from 14 days to 10 days.  In addition, a release from quarantine after a 7-day period can be accomplished if the following criteria are met: (1) a test is performed on Day 5 or later of quarantine and the result is negative, (2) no symptoms of COVID-19 develop (remain asymptomatic), and (3) self-monitoring for symptoms [check temperature and other symptoms twice daily] for an additional 7 days after release from quarantine.

Please contact Karl Kurt, Assistant Chief Administrator/Director of HR with any questions regarding the updated guidelines.
