The White House lifted COVID-19 testing requirements for those in close contact with President Biden and Vice President Harris, ending one of the last remaining federal pandemic restrictions.

This decision aligns with changing CDC guidance, which no longer recommends isolating for five days after a positive test.

The CDC’s new guidance says to stay home only when sick and fever-free for 24 hours, then return to work or school.

Some controversy has arisen around the contrast between the CDC’s messaging during the pandemic versus now.

In response, a non-partisan community called LC/DC plans to protest at the Lincoln Memorial on March 15, arguing the reduced isolation policy will lead to more infections and long-term illness.

“LC/DC is fighting to raise awareness about long COVID, and we recognize that reducing the isolation policy will result in more infections, long-term illnesses and disability,” organizer Paul Hennessy said.

The demonstration aims to raise awareness about long COVID impacts.
