CDC Director Rochelle Walensky has continued to change her messaging for COVID-19.
The the national public health agency has been put under scrutiny recently for its new guidance, which was released Monday and shortens the isolation time for people who have COVID yet are asymptomatic from 10 to five-days. Those in isolation will also no longer need to take a test to make sure they are no longer infected once the five-day period is over.

“People are most infectious in the one to two days before symptoms develop and the two to three days after,” said Walensky. “After five days, the risk of ongoing transmission decreases.”

This marks a huge change from the CDC’s guidelines near the start of the pandemic when they recommended a 14-day quarantine period all throughout 2020. In defense of the changes Wednesday, Walensky claimed she was simply following the science.
