Stay home for the holidays or get tested twice, CDC urges
December 3, 2020
Don't travel over the upcoming holidays. But if you must, consider getting coronavirus tests before and after, U.S. health officials urged Wednesday.
The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that the best way to stay safe and protect others is to stay home.
The agency also announced new guidelines that shorten recommended quarantines after close contact with someone infected with coronavirus. The agency said the risk in a shorter quarantine is small, but that the change makes following the guidance less of a hardship.
