New York State quarantine pointers
ALBANY, NY (NEWS 10) – According to New York State guidelines released Tuesday, those who have been exposed to COVID-19 are advised to quarantine for 10 days instead of 14 unless symptoms are reported.
“But you have to monitor yourself because if you get sick, up to 14 days or even a little longer, you have to put your Tush back in quarantine and notify your doctor,” explained pediatrician Dr. Jim Saperstone.
These new guidelines are linked to the CDC guidelines. A COVID-19 test is no longer required after a person completes the 10-day quarantine with no symptoms.
“I think the more we experience COVID, the better we understand it,” said Dr. Saperstone. “And everything is based on science, and more importantly, it still doesn’t take away the need to be vigilant – to be careful and wear masks and not grab our noses, wash hands and keep our distance. ”
