UPDATE: COVID-19 vaccines

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidance in March 2024 for COVID-19. The changes were made after health officials determined the current virus is less likely to cause severe illness, mostly due to widespread immunity through prior exposure and vaccines:

  • A five-day isolation period for those diagnosed with COVID-19 is no longer recommended. People with COVID-19 can return to work and regular activities if they are fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication, and their symptoms are improving.
  • People who end quarantine should practice enhanced hygiene (cover coughs and sneezes, wash and sanitize hands often), wear a well-fitting mask and, when possible, keep their distance from others, especially people 65 and older or those with weakened immune systems.

The CDC recommends that people stay up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccinations.
