Looks like suppressive “air cover” for what’s to come.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in a reversal of a previous recommendation, cut the number of days of isolation for Americans who contract COVID-19 from 10 days to five days regardless of vaccination status.
The agency similarly shortened the time that close contacts of COVID-19 need to quarantine. Authorities with the CDC said that its latest guidance is in line with more and more evidence suggesting that those who contract the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus are the most infectious two days before and three days after symptoms emerge.
Meanwhile, the CDC said that a surge in the Omicron variant across the United States propelled the latest guidance change. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky told The Associated Press on Monday that the United States will experience significantly more Omicron cases.
“Not all of those cases are going to be severe. In fact, many are going to be asymptomatic,” she told the newswire service. “We want to make sure there is a mechanism by which we can safely continue to keep society functioning while following the science.”
The CDC last week also loosened its recommendation for healthcare workers to stay out of work for about 10 days if they test positive for the CCP virus. New recommendations suggest that healthcare workers can head back to work after seven days if they produce a negative test result and have no symptoms.
The isolation time, the CDC added, can be shortened to five days if there are staffing shortages at facilities.
WIND: the science is whatever they want it to be. Still, it’s about time they came to their senses on the idiotic 10-day period thing.
Since when do scientific assessments depend on staffing levels...?! It was so transparently and arbitrarily anti-scientific before. At least now it makes some plausible sense.
But don’t get uppity: the science is whatever they say it is, so shut up and keep quiet and stay miserable and fearful, and keep up the COVID theater. As do all idiots and children.
What’s driving it? Perhaps a looming economic an societal disaster driven by idiotic and pointless testing protocols. We should be celebrating the end of the pandemic, courtesy of the Omicron variant.
And here’s some made-up fake news—this guy died from serious health problems:
Since the emergence of the new strain in southern Africa last month, only one Omicron death has been reported so far in the United States. Officials in Texas said a Harris County man apparently died from the variant last week.
