The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is cutting in half the quarantine time for all Americans with Covid-19, saying Monday (Dec. 27) that it is reducing the recommended quarantine time for citizens who test positive from the previous 10 days to five days if they are asymptomatic. The move could help airlines and other businesses alleviate staffing shortages caused by the disease. A jump in Covid 19 cases hampered U.S. airline staff Monday, causing hundreds of flight cancellations. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease expert, suggested the government consider making vaccination mandatory for domestic flights.

Flight cancellations

Hundreds of flight cancellations have occurred again in the U.S. due to infections with the Omicron variant of the coronavirus and bad weather. American media, citing flight data website Flight Aware, reported that about 1,000 flights within, to or from the U.S. were affected on Monday (Dec. 27). Delta airline said it expected more than 200 of its more than 4000 scheduled flights to be canceled Monday. In addition to staff absences due to Omicron, it said winter weather in Minneapolis, Seattle, Salt Lake City and other areas of the U.S. was responsible. The massive cancellations had begun on Christmas Eve.
