Over the last couple of days, we’ve seen more details come out with regards to COVID-19 protocols.  To sum it up, here is what Justin Fuente said about it on Tech Talk Live last night… (many thanks to Jake Lyman for working hard to write that up, as usual)

“I’ll do my best to try to explain it, but you’ve basically got two groups. You have the symptomatic or positive tests. If you’re positive, you have to isolate for 10+1 (days), and we also have to get an ECHO on your heart. That can lengthen the process a little bit because you have to get those scheduled and there’s a lot of pressure on the medical community, not just here in Blacksburg but across the country. Those things aren’t just snap your fingers and go. If a guy is positive, it’s 10+1 from his symptom date, and if he’s asymptomatic it’s just 10+1. Sometimes that drags on because we have to get the heart work and labs done before they can return to play.

If you are in contact tracing and are around somebody who was positive, that’s two weeks (in quarantine) assuming you don’t test positive.
