November 25, 2020 -- The CDC may soon recommend that people exposed to the coronavirus self-quarantine for 7 to 10 days instead of 14 days, a CDC official has toldThe Wall Street Journal.The CDC hopes a shorter self-quarantine period would increase public compliance with COVID safety measures, said Henry Walke, MD, director of the Division of Preparedness and Emerging Infections at the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases.
