You’ve been EXPOSED to COVID, what now? Your quarantine questions answered

 

Filmed live at the Hive, Atlanta, Georgia, on December 9, 2020. Dr. Baxter covers the latest CDC guidance on isolation and quarantine. Isolation: you are sick or test positive and keep away from others. Quarantine: you keep away from others IN CASE you get sick or contagious.

 

These topics are covered:

 

If you know you were exposed to COVID, how great is your risk?

 

What constitutes an “exposure”? Dr. Baxter shares a few examples and hypotheticals to illustrate the nuance of what it means to have been exposed.

 

Can you do anything fast? Our old friend, nasal irrigation, to lower the viral load. If you don’t know but suspect, what can you do?

 

How long is enough to quarantine? If exposed and you get tested, you still need to quarantine 7 days after a negative test. If exposed and you test positive, ISOLATE 10 days after.

 

What if you’re both positive but one of you is sick, do you still need isolation? They need to separate. One person is still shedding virus.

 

Dr. Baxter explains why we need rapid testing.

 

She also reminds us why it’s still very important to get your annual flu vaccine.
