As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by CNBC:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday reversed controversial coronavirus testing guidance that said people who were exposed to an infected person but weren’t showing any symptoms did “not necessarily need a test.”
The new guidance says that people without symptoms who have been in close contact with an infected person “need a test.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“Please consult with your healthcare provider or public health official. Testing is recommended for all close contacts of persons with SARS-CoV-2 infection,” the new guidance says. “Because of the potential for asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic transmission, it is important that contacts of individuals with SARS-CoV-2 infection be quickly identified and tested.”
. @CDC appears to have walked back its controversial guidance that testing might not be necessary if you are exposed to someone with the virus so long as you aren’t showing symptoms. “You need a test” is now the rule of thumb, again. https://t.co/RlqNRU135n
