New guidelines released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) should help those testing positive for COVID-19 get back to work safely more quickly, local officials said.

County health officer Dr. William David Moore said CDC studies have not been able to recover infectious particles from individuals with mild to moderate COVID-19 after 10 days of initial symptoms or a positive test. While that individual may still test positive, that means they are most likely no longer infectious after 10 days, Moore said.
