CDC Update for Contact Exposure Time

The CDC has updated the definition for contact exposure time from 15 consecutive minutes to 15 minutes over a 24 hour period. This is important in determining if COVID-19 testing is needed. Does your facility have a protocol or process questionnaire that details a question related to contact exposure? If so, please review and update as needed.
