Chicago will continue to test anyone exposed to the virus, even if they are asymptomatic.

“The science suggests that we want to do everything we can to control COVID, and in our minds that means continuing to test asymptomatic cases,” Arwady said.

Arwady thinks that, while the rollout was confusing for some, the new guidance was meant to put more responsibility on state and local health departments.

Arwady noted that if someone has been in contact with a person who tests positive for COVID-19, they still need to be quarantined for 14 days, even if they test negative.
