Subject Sacramento County Stopping CV-19 Quarantines, Goes From Containing The Virus To Mitigation

In a move that surprised many, Sacramento County health officials on Monday announced that it was shifting away from the 14-day coronavirus quarantine guidance for some people.

The department released a statement saying that, because of the shift from containing the virus to mitigating its spread, "it is no longer necessary for someone who has been in contact with someone with COVID-19 to quarantine for 14 days."

The county is still asking people who are showing or developing respiratory symptoms to still stay at home.

Jonathan Eisien, a University of California, Davis biology professor, has been following developments closely and is concerned about Sacramento County's announcement, calling it "premature,"

Eisien said he thinks self-quarantining for anyone possibly exposed to the virus will help slow its spread.

"People still get infected, but they get infected over a month or year, not weeks," Eisien said. "And that means there will be hospital beds available."
