US CDC avoids mandating antigen test to end five-day COVID-19 isolation

(Reuters) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Tuesday people seeking to end their COVID-19 isolation at five days can opt for a rapid antigen test, but stopped short of mandating the test despite pressure by health experts.

“If an individual has access to a test and wants to test, the best approach is to use an antigen test towards the end of the 5-day isolation period,” the agency said.
