As of December 27, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cut its earlier recommendation of 10 days of isolation due to a positive COVID-19 test in half. That means anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 but is asymptomatic needs to isolate for only five days. The CDC’s recommended quarantine period for anyone who has been exposed to the virus has also been updated. Unvaccinated people should quarantine for five days, followed by five days of "strict mask use." The most critical action hoteliers can take now is to encourage your employees to get vaccinated if they have not already done so. Vaccinations are a great means to ensure the safety of your employees and the confidence of your guests. Sign the AAHOA Pledge to Protect today and visit our website for more information.
