CDC Guidance and Links

New COVID Guidelines from CDC as of March 4, 2024

The CDC updated COVID illness/recovery guidelines to match the guidelines for flu and other respiratory illnesses.

 

 

The new guidelines:

People who test positive for Covid no longer need to be isolated for five days.

The CDC’s new guidance now matches public health advice for flu and other respiratory illnesses: 

  • Stay home when you’re sick, but you may return to school or work once you’re feeling better and you’ve been without a fever for at least 24 hours without taking fever-reducing medications such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil).

  • The CDC still encourages people to play it safe for five days after they are feeling better. That includes masking around vulnerable people (including, but not limited to, those with weakened immune systems, elderly, those with heart or lung conditions, diabetes) and opening windows to improve the flow of fresh air when indoors.

As always, the SAU #70 Health Offices encourage you to stay home when you are sick!
