Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) might once again change its quarantine and testing guidelines for people who test positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive.
Fauci joined host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” after the CDC issued a reduction of isolation guidelines from ten days to five days, which was attributed to the changing “science” and by pointing to economic factors — a matter of public policy and not scientific guidance.
“A pretty big backlash this week to the CDC cutting quarantine for those testing positive without symptoms to five days,” Stephanopoulos began. “First of all, are you surprised by that, and what was the – why not have a negative test? Why not require a negative test for that extra layer of protection?”
