Not to pee in the punchbowl, but how many unvaccinated people currently quarantine diligently after being exposed to someone with COVID? One in 10 maybe?
How many people would know how to even find the relevant CDC guidance on when to quarantine if you plopped them down in front of a computer and gave them 10 minutes?
It’s right here, halfway down a long jargon-y page about vaccine administration. We’re nearly a year into the pandemic and I doubt more than five percent of the population could cite any CDC instructions beyond the most basic stuff like “wear a mask” and “stay six feet away.” The new rule exempting certain people from quarantine turns out to be a three-part test, and needless to say, hardly anyone will be rigorously applying that test in deciding whether to break quarantine or not.
