I know we have some experts here and I’ve been following some Twitter folks recommended here in another thread that do seem to put out very reliable information. I’m seeing claims in some of the comments that after a few months we need a second booster to have a significant chance of warding off omicron? Israel seems to be pushing for a second booster for 60 and up.
It’s seems here in my neck of the woods quarantine requirements are just becoming less and less. You can return to work in hospital settings without a negative test five days after a positive one even if you still have mild symptoms. Meanwhile my whole school district is closed to students tomorrow due to staff and bus shortages. Teachers are still going in for revised Covid guidelines.
I have to admit I’m getting mixed signals. The anti-government in me wants to guess it has to do with money and not wanting massive closures again. Or is the CDC science behind this. Are you really only contagious for a few days around a positive test or when you have strong symptoms? I remember asymptomatic spread being a thing. Meaning people with no symptoms spreading it. How does that play into 5 days with no test? Or is that also only most transmissible shortly around infection?
