CDC Reverses New Policy Back To Its Old Policy About COVID-19 Testing

September 21, 2020

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is giving us all a case of coronavirus whiplash!  Friday (9/18/20), the CDC now recommends COVID-19 testing be done on all individuals, showing symptoms or not, who has come in close contact to someone who test positive or has coronavirus. Close contact is defined as pending at least 15 minutes 6 feet or closer to the person.  This returns the CDC to its original recommendation after it was changed a few weeks ago against the testing of asymptomatic people when in close contact to a positive case. The back and forth of coronavirus testing appears to be the latest indication that much of the country’s public health response to covid-19 has been politically motivated. The problem is now the mass confusion among the public. The CDC’s new/old position is now in line with the rest of the world and the vast majority of doctors and scents on the front line with the virus.
