Is it safe to spend time with someone who previously tested positive for COVID-19 if they are no longer symptomatic?
According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), in general, if someone tested positive for COVID-19 and had symptoms, then he/she can be around others once 10 days have passed since symptoms began, and he/she is without fever for 24 hours (without using fever-reducing medications), and any other COVID-19 symptoms are improving. These recommendations do not apply to those who have a severe case of COVID-19 nor to people who are immunocompromised.
