Oh? You can return to work even without a test showing you’re no longer covid-positive?
That’s a hell of change, isn’t it?
Not to worry, the CDC’s Rachel Wallensky says: This is a change based entirely on The Science,which apparently we just discovered after two years of experience with testing for covid.

The newly updated CDC guidelines don’t require testing at the end of isolation because PCR tests can stay positive for up to 12 weeks, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told “Good Morning America” Wednesday.
“So we would have people in isolation for a very long time if we were relying on PCRs,” Walensky said.

So people have been testing themselves with these PCR tests post-initial diagnosis for two years and this has been yielding false positives for up to 12 weeks post-infection, and no one bothered to say so until now?

What’s really going on here?
Oh, right: “The Science” is lying to us again. Or rather, The Politics: Brandon dropped the ball on ordering up an adequate supply of tests, and now we don’t have enough tests to test all the people who are about to get omicron.
So the CDC is telling people they don’t need to get tested post-infection, to reduce the need for tests that we don’t have because their boss is a senile incompetent.
And that’s “The Science” in action!

President Joe Biden is closing out his first year in office facing one of the same problems he entered the White House vowing to fix: a persistent shortage of Covid-19 testing that, if resolved, could provide a way out of the still-raging pandemic….Yet the failures surrounding testing have led to accusations that the White House failed to anticipate the pandemic’s course and overemphasized vaccinations as a solution to ending the crisis, even as outside experts warned of a looming test shortage directly to administration officials.
Biden’s team insists they took what steps they could in the fall to build up testing capacity but acknowledge that a surge in demand and relatively recent emergency use authorizations from the US Food and Drug Administration have made stockpiling at-home tests a challenge.
And the shortage of tests factored into the administration’s decision Monday not to recommend tests for individuals exposed to the virus to emerge from a shortened five-day quarantine, according to an official familiar with the discussions.
“If we require a test, people are going to say, ‘What if we can’t get a test?’ ” the senior administration official said, recounting internal deliberations on condition of anonymity. “Rather than letting the perfect be the enemy of the good,” the official said, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention opted for less stringent language, noting that “best practice would also include a test for SARS-CoV-2 at day 5 after exposure.”
Biden himself has frankly acknowledged that his efforts have fallen short, particularly in scaling up testing, even as he seeks to take credit for other aspects of fighting the pandemic.
“It’s clearly not enough. If I had — we had — known, we would have gone harder, quicker, if we could have,” Biden said in describing his testing efforts this week while meeting virtually with governors. “We have to do more. We have to do better, and we will.”
Other top health officials, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, the President’s top medical adviser, have similarly acknowledged the testing shortfalls in interviews. And White House press secretary Jen Psaki conceded last week that she could have provided more context when she dismissed the notion of sending tests to Americans just two weeks ago.

Actual scientists are perplexed by the Science Priests sudden new claims about what “The Science” scriptures are telling them, because this isn’t science at all, this is all politics and bureaucratic ass-covering and a lot of covering up for the failures of a Democrat.

They’re inventing made-up “science” to Manage Public Relations and to Reassure the Public that Brandon Knows What He’s Doing.
Public Relations — the highest form of The Science!
