New CDC guidelines on quarantine periods

Dec. 4, 2020

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its guidance for quarantine after exposure, shortening the period to 10 days (from 14 days) if no symptoms are reported during quarantine. People also may be released from quarantine after a full seven days if they never had symptoms after exposure and have a negative PCR test collected at least five days after exposure. As always, students should work with ASU Health Services on their release from quarantine because there may be circumstances that might mean longer quarantine periods.
