March 8, 2023 - CDPH Updates COVID-19 Guidance
With an end declared to California’s COVID-19 state of emergency, state health officials have announced updates to several pandemic-era public health orders related to vaccines, masking, isolation and quarantine. One big change that will impact schools is reduced isolation time for individuals recovering from COVID-19.
- Reduced Isolation Time After Positive COVID-19 Test
Beginning March 13, a COVID-19 positive person may end isolation after five days if they feel well, have improving symptoms, and are fever-free for 24 hours, with less emphasis on testing negative. This change aligns with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations and takes effect on Monday, March 13.
The California Department of Public Health says its latest guidance aligns with recent recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And it follows on the heels of the California Governor issuing a proclamation ending the COVID-19 state of emergency that had been in place since March 2020.
