In a widely circulated move that broke with recommendations from other health authorities around the world, the CDC revised its guidance on quarantine and isolation periods.
ONE statement released yesterday reads: “CDC is shortening the recommended period of isolation from 10 days for people with COVID-19 to 5 days, if asymptomatic, then five days wearing a mask when around other people.” Quarantine applies to people who test positive for COVID-19.
That brings us to the memes.
“Good news! CDC just confirmed she’s good to fly the Eva again,” @MalwareDare shared via image of Rei Ayanami in episode 1 of the episode. Neon Genesis Evangelion. Brutal.
Meanwhile, Marvel fans have had their own fun with this: “CDC says what is grief without enduring love…”
It seems like every fandom has their own interpretation of what the new principles mean for their world. Zombie? “The CDC has announced that I don’t need to tell anyone else on the team that a zombie bit me a few miles away,” apparently.
I don’t know if there’s a canonical fandom, but this joke at Orpheus’ expense is too good to ignore.
Even pop-punk fans joined the fun.
People have been posting sarcastic tweets all day long, such as what I wish was true.
The health authority also updated its quarantine guidelines, which apply to individuals exposed to COVID-19 but not necessarily positive.
“CDC currently recommends isolation for five days followed by strict mask use for an additional five days for unvaccinated individuals or more than six months from their second dose of mRNA (or more than two months after vaccination). J&J vaccine) and has not been enhanced. . ”
According to the revised recommendations, people who are promoted do not need to be isolated if they do not have symptoms, but should wear a mask for 10 days after exposure.
