CDC updates guidance on coronavirus quarantine length

The CDC revised its quarantine recommendations for people who were exposed to the coronavirus but have not tested positive or exhibited symptoms. The new guidance says that people without symptoms can end their quarantine after seven days (following a negative test result) or 10 days (without a test), reducing the previous guidance from 14 days. The agency also noted that local health authorities make the final decision on how long quarantines should last in their individual communities. See the full announcement
