The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released new guidance saying that people who have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and show no symptoms do not need to quarantine if they have been in close contact with somebody with the virus. To read the guidance, including additional criteria, click here. Curi has updated the COVID-19 Vaccines page on our COVID Practice Command Center—including FAQs and an employee exposure flowchart—to reflect these updates.
All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
