Fauci says negative test before leaving quarantine 'under consideration' by CDC

White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is considering adding a negative COVID-19 test requirement to the new five-day quarantine guidelines.

“There was a pretty big backlash this week to the CDC cutting quarantine for those who’ve tested positive without symptoms to five days,” ABC’s George Stephanopolous said on Sunday during an interview with Fauci.

The latest guidance was notably criticized last week by Trump administration Surgeon General Jerome Adams, who told people not to follow it.
