The CDC has lowered the recommended quarantine time after a positive virus test from 10 days to 5 days. This comes on the heels of Delta CEO Ed Bastian writing a letter to the CDC asking them to do that very thing just one week ago. Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared on CNN to answer the question of why the CDC lowered the quarantine time and he spoke about the need for society to function properly. Fauci also referred to the availability of the workforce as being paramount, especially for “essential” positions. The CDC, however, presented a more “scientific” reason for the recommendation change. So the obvious question is… who should the American people believe?
