CDC Revised Guiedlines for the Isolation and Quarantine Period on December 27, 2021.
On December 27, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revised guidelines for the isolation and quarantine period of COVID-19 given what is currently known about the Omicron variant. In accordance with the CDC, the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, Bureau for Public Health recommends all public health partners utilize the shortened isolation and quarantine period for the general population.
Changes to isolation and quarantine guidance were driven by science surrounding the Omicron variant demonstrating that most of the transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally 1-2 days prior to onset of symptoms and 2-3 days after. Therefore, people who test positive should isolate for 5 days, and if asymptomatic or have an improvement in symptoms at that time, they may leave isolation if they can continue to wear a well-fitted mask for an additional 5 days to minimize the risk of infecting others.
