DHS updates testing guidance

This Wisconsin Department of Health Services is piggy-backing off of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s unprecedented pandemic announcement this week. After the CDC announced that those fully vaccinated from COVID19 have a near green-light to return to pre-pandemic life, the DHS issued a change to their testing guidance. The department announced that people who are fully vaccinated can also refrain from testing, even after a known exposure, unless they are residents of a correctional or detention facility, or a homeless shelter. People are considered to be fully vaccinated once they are two weeks removed from their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or their first dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
