We can dance around this forever, but they still aren't wrong in the guidance. If the Gedaliah Society prefers to issue guidance that leans towards the more cautious side, that doesn't warrant a

You are obfuscating the issues. The science is clear that if the COVID-positive or bystander is wearing a mask then quarantine is not mandated. The Gedaliah Society definition of exposure requiring quarantine is wrong.

They get to set the definition at it pertains to their guidance ONLY. That is what they did. And their guidance falls within currently accepted medical protocols.

CDC says otherwise

Where? @ Lurker quoted from the CDC referring to the length of time that constitutes an exposure. Where does CDC state that an exposure includes someone wearing a mask in close proximity to an infected person?

Thank you for clarifying that. Apparently MD Anderson does not agree with that.

Honestly, I was pretty shocked at their blanket statement given all we know about the various masks being used around this country. It doesn't match up with any other guidance I've seen published.

I'm wondering if it's because they assume that many people aren't wearing their masks correctly (no nose/chin).

Per the CDC, what is the ruling of close contact with someone with the virus, but the ill person was wearing a mask?

(and a link would be helpful)

Then their guidance makes even less sense. It would seem that they are assuming the opposite - that everyone is wearing top quality masks and wearing them correctly.

Oops. Misunderstood your comment. Thought you were talking about Gedaliah Society statement.

Yes, they most likely are issuing stricter guidance because they know how many low quality masks are being utilized and how many people aren't using masks correctly.

Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Another indication how politicized this whole topic has become.
