The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has changed its COVID-19 recommendations for individuals and the general public to reflect the recent recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC recommended shortening the quarantine and isolation duration for those who aren’t vaccinated or haven’t received their booster to five days followed by an additional five days of wearing a well-fitting mask around others.

The guidance updated Friday is specific to the general public and doesn't change current recommendations for congregate settings, early childcare or K-12 settings.

Those settings should continue to use existing guidelines and policies regarding quarantine and isolation.
