No Quarantine for Boosted, Asymptomatic Close Contacts

Beginning 1 March, people categorized as close contacts of positive Covid-19 cases will not have to undergo quarantine if they are asymptomatic and have received a third booster vaccine dose. We speak to epidemiologist Dr. Sanjay Rampal on the rationale for the policy as well as the challenge of balancing different interests as we head towards an endemic phase of Covid-19.
