In this week’s podcast, Dr. Soumi Eachempati speaks to guest host,
Nayyera Haq, from Sirius’s Urban View.

Part 1: The CDC revamped and reconfigured major recommendations on how to keep these areas safe from increased cases of COVID. The new guidelines state that those who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus should quarantine for 10 days, regardless of whether or not they develop symptoms. Unfortunately, some of these recommendations are ambiguous and self-contradictory. Dr. Soumi Eachempati explains the important points and potential pitfalls of this guidance.
