CDC drops controversial testing advice that caused backlash

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield speaks Sept. 16 at a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing on a “Review of Coronavirus Response Efforts” on Capitol Hill in Washington. On Friday, the CDC dropped a controversial piece of coronavirus guidance and said anyone who has been in close contact with an infected person should get tested. The CDC essentially returned to its previous testing guidance, getting rid of language posted last month that said people who didn’t feel sick didn’t need to get tested.
