As the Omicron variant travels through the U.S., it’s good to know what to do to keep yourself and others safe.
Depending on where you live, you could be asked to quarantine between 5 days and 2 weeks. And currently, in the U.S., you can leave quarantine after 5 days if you show no sign of symptoms.
After the 5 days of not having any symptoms, you are then advised to where a mask around others for 5 additional days for extra precautions!
“If you are asymptomatic and you are infected, we want to get people back to their jobs — particularly those with essential jobs — to keep our society running smoothly,”Dr. Anthony Fauci – director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (to CNN)
“There is accumulating evidence, for vaccinated people, that if we are asymptomatic we are very unlikely to be infectious after about five to seven days,”Dr. Megan Ranney – Brown University’s Associate Dean of Public Health
As usual, stay smart, listen to your body, and stay away from others if you think you may be carrying any variant to help stop the spread!
