Under quarantine? But not showing any symptoms? Here is what CDC reports

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reviewed and analyzed new research and modeling data and has identified two acceptable alternative quarantine periods

When a person is under quarantine, and fails to show symptoms after 10 days, they do not need to be tested for COVID19. Their quarantine period ends after 10 days. However, they should still watch for symptoms for atleast a total of 14 days. 

As per reports, the residual risk in this case ranges from 1% to 12% which means there is a risk of 1%- 12% for you to still be a spreader or be infected with COVID19.

When a person is under quarantine and fails to show symptoms after 7 days and reports negative for COVID19 test, their quarantine period can end after 7 days.  As per reports, the residual risk in this case ranges from about 5% to 10% which means there is a risk of 5%- 10% for you to still be a spreader or be infected with COVID19.

What if I want to travel? Do I need to get tested?

If an individual wants to travel, they are recommended to get tested 1-3 days before the travel. It is advised to test again 3-5 days after they return from travel. Along with that, they must restrict their activities for upto 7 days as a measure of precaution.

In the same scenario, if an individual refuses to not get tested after they return from travel, they are advised to restrict their activities for upto 10 days.
