CDC to keep Covid mask, isolation and testing guidelines in place

With nearly 500 Covid-related deaths being reported every day in the U.S., on average, the Centers for Disease Control and Protection has no plans to ease up

With nearly 500 Covid-related deaths being reported every day in the U.S., on average, the Centers for Disease Control and Protection has no plans to ease up on restrictions anytime soon.

The CDC is expected to publish an updated summary of its Covid guidance within the next week. According to a draft document reviewed by NBC News, there are no significant changes in the current advice to mask, test or isolate.

The document is not final and could change before its expected public release next week.

Average Covid case numbers — certainly an undercount because of home testing — hit their highest level of the current surge last week, when an average of more than 136,000 cases per day were recorded on July 29, according to NBC News data.

Still, Covid cases are no longer overwhelming hospital systems as they were early on in the pandemic. The average number of beds filled with those who have Covid has leveled off, and began declining last Saturday for the first time in more than three months.
