If you are sick, how long should you stay home?
By now, everyone should know that if you are sick, stay home - this protects co-workers, customers and the community. However, new evidence suggests that those infected may be contagious longer than the seven days from when symptoms begin. The CDC now recommends ending home isolation under the following conditions:
- At least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since the resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications; and
- Improvement of respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and,
- At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
To clean surfaces exposed to the virus EPA has a list of disinfectants for COVID-19.
