    CDC issues new guidance for essential workers exposed to coronavirus

    CDC issues new guidance for essential workers exposed to coronavirus

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday issued new guidelines aimed at getting workers who have been exposed to the coronavirus in critical fields back to work faster.
    Under the old guidance, workers were told to stay at home for 14 days if they were exposed to someone who had tested positive for coronavirus.
    The new guidelines will allow critical workers who have been exposed go back to work as long as they are asymptomatic and follow conditions like taking their temperature before going to work, wearing a face mask at all times and practicing social distancing at work as much as possible.

    This ought to drive some on this forum crazy. Actually, this is not entirely new. Situationally, they will even allow someone tested positive to work if considered the person is extremely critical - though have many guidelines to be followed.

    Coronavirus still poses a low risk to the general public in the US.""If you are a healthy young person, there is no reason if you want to go on a cruise ship, go on a cruise ship." "If you have tested negative for covid-19, there is no reason to wear a mask." Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of NIAID

    Is this **** contagious or not? I am telling my people to park their trucks and wait a couple weeks to see what's, what. The engineering firm has been down since the 1st.

    The CDC has already pissed away their credibility with a history of providing bad/little information and all around poor quality work.

    I have a great deal of respect for healthcare workers who are risking their lives, literally, to care for the sick and dying. Of course the CDC had to come up with some sort of plan to keep at risk workers on the job taking care of the old and sick. We cannot look the other way and allow them to just die if there is nobody willing to risk their life to save them.

    Hold on now, you are brushing up against my pet peeve of Americans lack of willingness/ability to think things through anymore....


    There might be fireworks ahead!

    As if Americans ever had enough intelligence for that? Why do you think Government lies to the people? Because the people do not understand the truth. And they don't want to.

    They are the same thing. Without will, you have no ability. But neither are lacking in Americans. What they lack is perspective, and what they require is leadership.
