CDC may shorten quarantine recommendations

Too late for football season, but may help things for basketball and beyond as conferences adjust to the new guidelines. They’re thinking 14 days is too much. Greatest risk of transmitting the virus is days 4-7; after that it’s reduced.

I just read a meta-analysis from The Lancet showing that high volume viral shedding with SAR-CoV-2 is less than what is seen with SARS-CoV-1 and MERS. Looks to be more in the 7 day range. Which is encouraging.
