Now the new guidance says that people without symptoms who have been in close contact with an infected person "need a test".
"There is evidence that water droplets and airborne particles can be suspended in the air and inhaled by others, and travel distances beyond 6 feet (e.g. during singer training, in restaurants or fitness classes)", says Page now. An example of these small particles is aerosols, which can be produced "even when a person breathes". "In general, indoor environments without good ventilation increase this risk". It restricted the spread of respiratory droplets "when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks".
Dr. Anthony Fauci, who was undergoing surgery when the CDC updated its guidelines in August, highlighted the importance of testing asymptomatic people during an interview with told Chris Hayes, MSNBC reported.

On Thursday, the NYT reported that the CDC was not only forced to accept the changed guidelines but that the changes were made without going through the CDC's standard scientific review process. Earlier, the website said "people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus", to now saying "people who are infected but do not show symptoms can spread the virus to others".
For months, scientists and public health experts have warned of mounting evidence that the novel coronavirus is airborne, transmitted through tiny droplets called aerosols that linger in the air much longer than the larger globs that come from coughing or sneezing.
After the scientists wrote to the global health body, it released a report on July 9 on airborne transmission and the spread of the virus. The letter was also published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases. "Hand washing and social distancing are appropriate, but in our view, insufficient to provide protection from virus-carrying respiratory microdroplets released into the air by infected people", they added. This week, the scientific journal Indoor Air received one paper for a post that found that numerous 53 choir singers who got sick After attending a March 10 practice at Mount Vernon, Washington, he probably caught COVID-19 via airborne transmission.
