ATLANTA (WCBD) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its quarantine guidelines for anyone diagnosed with COVID-19.

Patients with mild to moderate illness can come out of isolation after 10 days without symptoms.

You also no longer need a negative test to return to work or other activities.

The change from 14 days came after studies revealed most COVID-19 patients were no longer infections after 10 days.
