  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its COVID-19 guidance, easing recommendations for people who are unvaccinated and have been exposed to COVID-19. The new guidance recommends that unvaccinated people wear mask for 10 days and get tested five days after they were exposed, rather than quarantining after exposure. The CDC also retired social distancing measures; however, the agency is still recommending that people who test positive should stay home for at least five days and wear a mask around others for 10 days.
