Members of Ontario's outgoing science table say they would have advised against the province's decision to scrap its mandatory isolation period for COVID-19 if they had been consulted on the move.

Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore said Wednesday that those who test positive for COVID-19 no longer need to isolate for five days, an approach he referred to as "practical and pragmatic."

Under new guidelines, people should stay home until their fever clears and their symptoms have improved for at least 24 hours but they should wear a mask "in any setting" for 10 full days and refrain from going into high-risk settings such as long-term care homes during that time.
