Public Health Recommendations for Community-Related Exposure

Public health recommendations have been updated to accommodate new scientific evidence, evolving epidemiology and the need to simplify risk stratification. New recommendations are based on:

  • Growing evidence of transmission risk from infected persons without symptoms or before the onset of recognized symptoms;
  • Increased community transmission in many parts of the country;
  • A need to communicate effectively to the general public and to simplify implementation for public health authorities;
  • Limitations in access to COVID-19 testing and increasing number of cases diagnosed clinically
  • Continued focus on reducing transmission through social distancing of individuals in affected areas.
