MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Marquette County Health Department (MCHD) is adjusting its COVID-19 quarantine recommendation. The MCHD is recommending a quarantine period of 10 days. Previously, the recommendation had been 14 days.

According to a press release received Tuesday evening, MCHD believes a 14 day quarantine period can impose personal burdens that may affect physical and mental health as well as cause economic hardship, making it difficult for many people to comply. MCHD also stated that increased COVID-19 exposure in relation to decreased quarantine day recommendations is difficult to study, which is another reason that the Marquette County Health Department has made the decision to go for a shorter period of 10 days.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) changed quarantine guidelines from fourteen days to ten days back in December of 2020.
