California Adds Twist to New CDC Advice on Quarantines
The Monday after Christmas, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shortened its COVID-19 quarantine recommendation by half. That same day, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on Twitter that California will follow suit, recommending a five-day isolation period instead of the state’s former guidance of 10 days. “California will align with the CDC’s updated guidelines for isolation and quarantine time,” Newsom tweeted.
