Virus or no virus I am not being a guinea pig and trying no virus for at least a year after it is out.

CDC shortens COVID-19 quarantine to 'reduce burden' on Americans

In a move praised by epidemiologists, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has shortened the recommended quarantine time for those exposed to COVID-19 who are not showing symptoms, suggesting seven days for those with a negative test and 10 days for those without one. The organization encourages Americans to get a test in the “final two days” of quarantine, either via PCR or a rapid antigen test.

The new guidance is a departure from the 14-day quarantine initially put in place by the CDC, which did not mention testing. During a press call Wednesday, the CDC noted that a two-week quarantine is still the optimal way to protect against spreading the virus, but with COVID-19 cases trending upward in nearly every state, experts agree that a reduced quarantine may encourage more Americans to stay home."

It is impossible to know until large scale vaccinations happen and if people get sick afterwards and then we will have a better idea.

I'm concerned because it has not been out long and there is a 2nd shot that no one knows how it will affect you.

How ling will it take for everyone to have access to the vaccine, and how many will opt out of it. This is what will impact the effectiveness of the vaccine. If half the population are not vaccinated how will it reduce the pandemic?
