Last Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its guidance on coronavirus protection. By Monday morning, that guidance was retracted.
On Friday, the CDC updated guidance that was posted to its website, stated that six feet might not be enough to protect you from the coronavirus, especially if you are indoors. As of Monday, the following week, the CDC has retracted its updated guidance, and according to a CDC representative that spoke to Insider, the new guidance had been "posted in error to the agency's official website".
Before the guidance was retracted, it was the first time the agency acknowledged that the coronavirus "can remain suspended in the air and be breathed in by others, and travel distances beyond six feet." That statement lines up with an ever-growing body of evidence from around the world that the virus can linger in the air, especially indoors.
