The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has adopted streamlined recommendations for dealing with common respiratory viral illnesses, including COVID-19. As a part of this guidance, CDC and the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) continue to recommend core prevention strategies such as staying up to date on vaccinations, practicing good hygiene, taking steps for cleaner air, and staying home when sick.

Individuals can return to normal activities when symptoms have been getting better for 24 hours. Individuals who had a fever as a symptom can resume normal activities when the fever has been gone for at least 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medicines). Once people return to normal activities, they should take enhanced precautions for the next five days (including wearing a well-fitting mask when able, keeping a distance from others, and using available test methods to inform individual actions).

This updated guidance does not apply to healthcare settings. The Infectious Disease Control Manual (IDCM) has been updated to reflect this most recent guidance.
