It’s Over: CDC Says People Exposed To COVID No Longer Need To Quarantine

And just like that, the hysteria was over, but at least we all “followed the science”

“Sorry you guys had to miss your grandmother’s funeral, but at least you don’t have to quarantine anymore!” 

That may as well have been the message that the CDC put out on Thursday, conceding after years of micromanaging a “crisis” that those who are exposed to Covid no longer need to quarantine, regardless of their vaccination status, something which would have gotten you banned on all social networks in a millisecond if you dared to tweet just a little over a year ago. 

New guidelines only recommend that people who have been exposed “wear a mask for 10 days” and get tested for the virus on day 5, according to the New York Times, a radical departure from the prior draconian measures which required self-imposed quaratines for as long as 14 days.

The CDC also doesn’t recommend staying at least 6 feet away from other people to reduce the risk of exposure, CNN noted. It’s a recommendation that boldly flies in the face of the scared sh*tless narrative the agency has been pushing. 

According to the same report, the new guidelines also say that contact tracing “should be limited to hospitals and certain high-risk group-living situations such as nursing homes”. They also “de-emphasize the use of regular testing to screen for Covid-19, except in certain high-risk settings like nursing homes and prisons.”

Greta Massetti, a C.D.C. epidemiologist, said Thursday: “We know that Covid-19 is here to stay. High levels of population immunity due to vaccination and previous infection, and the many tools that we have available to protect people from severe illness and death, have put us in a different place.”

According to Massetti and the Times, the new guidelines “emphasize the importance of vaccination and other measures, including antiviral treatments and ventilation.”
