IDSA on New CDC Changes to Post-COVID-19 Infection Recommendations

Updated recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on masking and isolation post-COVID-19 infection are a positive sign that advances in vaccines and treatments have significantly lowered the risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death from the disease. However, with much of the country experiencing higher than 20% transmission rates, we cannot let our guard down.

The changes in the recommendations are thanks in large part to the work of infectious diseases physicians, scientists and other frontline health care and public health workers and demonstrate the powerful effects of vaccination. As the pandemic continues to evolve, it is critical that we continue to protect ourselves and others around us by isolating and masking when appropriate.

Vaccination remains an essential way to protect yourself against COVID-19. The Infectious Diseases Society of America urges everyone to stay up to date on vaccines and boosters to protect against variants of the virus.

--Daniel P. McQuillen, MD, FIDSA – President, Infectious Diseases Society of America
