The Michigan Health Department updated their COVID-19 isolation and quarantine guidance on Thursday.
Regardless of vaccination status, people with COVID symptoms or a positive test need to isolate, according to the department. But Chief Medical Executive Dr. Natasha Bagdasarian says the state “has entered a post-surge recovery phase.”
The new recommendations suggest 10 days of self-monitoring after exposure and testing within 10 days, as well as use of a well-fitting mask. Patients should also isolate at home for five days after the start of symptoms or a positive test.
