The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has shortened the quarantine and isolation periods of Kovid sufferers. The isolation period for asymptomatic patients has now been reduced from 10 to five days. According to the CDC’s updated guidelines, a person can only wear a mask for five days.

The quarantine duration was thus shortened based on the finding that covid spreads generally occur in the early days of infection. According to various studies, the maximum spread of the disease is 1-2 days before the onset of symptoms and 2-3 days after the onset of symptoms.

The CDC has set a quarantine period of five days for those who do not take the vaccine or booster dose. The CDC says those who take the booster dose do not need to sit on the quarantine and that they only need to wear a mask for 10 days.
