The amount of time teachers, students and additional school employees are required to isolate if they test positive for COVID-19 has been shortened by Colorado's health department to reflect new CDC guidelines.

Individuals who have mild symptoms can refrain from isolating after five days if they do not have a fever for 24 hours without taking medication and if other symptoms improve, The Denver Post reports. Those who test positive and isolate should wear a mask around others whether at home or in public for an additional five days after isolating.
