The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is purportedly considering as early as Wednesday changing its guidelines for self-isolation for the coronavirus.
The change would make returning to work easier for those exposed to someone with the virus but without symptoms, according to the Associated Press.
The CDC and the White House coronavirus task force purportedly would jointly announce the change.
Those meeting the guidelines would also have to test their temperature twice daily and wear a face mask, a person familiar with the proposal under consideration told the wire service.
The effort is purportedly an effort to get employees of critical jobs back to work and help the U.S. economy recover as soon as possible.
