Michigan won’t follow the updated CDC Covid guidance on shorter quarantine and isolation times.
The CDC on Monday recommended shorter Covid isolation and quarantine time for all Americans.
The CDC made the decision to cut isolation time from 10 to 5 days in an effort to help Joe Biden and make sure there isn’t a total collapse of society under his watch.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky on Wednesday said the agency’s updated Covid guidance was based on [as much tyranny] as people would tolerate.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) on Thursday said it is sticking to the 10 day quarantine.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently issued new guidance for quarantine and isolation that modified or shortened the quarantine and isolation period in some circumstances. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) intends to review the supporting evidence behind this guidance, while awaiting additional information from the CDC, specifically for special populations and in high-risk settings.” the MDHHS said in a statement.
“In the interim, MDHHS will retain current quarantine and isolation guidelines including guidelines for K-12 and congregate care settings. MDHHS will update Michigan’s guidance when additional information becomes available from the CDC.” the department said.
