RI Health Department Tells Vaccinated People to Test for Covid Anyway Within 3-5 Days if They Had Contact With Someone Positive

On Friday the Rhode Island Department of Health released new guidelines for those who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

“If you’re fully vaccinated and had close contact with someone who tested positive for #COVID19, you must get tested 3-5 days after exposure. Wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days, or until you receive a negative result. Learn more at http://covid.ri.gov/whattodo.”

The RI Department of Health is telling those who are “close contacts”, meaning people who have come in contact with someone who has tested positive of Covid-19, to wear a mask while indoors for fourteen days. Meanwhile, they are also asking them to get tested for Covid 3-5 days after the exposure.

Rhode Island, a state with a high percentage of people vaccinated and zero reported Covid-19 cases and deaths yesterday, seems to be continuing with what some might call “illogical” guidelines. Some may argue every few months the government flip-flops on their guidelines and what they suggest.

Just recently Dr. Fauci said it was “too early” to see whether or not Americans could gather for Christmas as they use to. He later went back on that statement and now he appeared to give the “green light” for Halloween.

Fauci said, “You can get out there – you’re outdoors for the most part, at least, when my children were out there doing trick-or-treating – and enjoy it. I mean, this is a time that children love. It’s a very important part of the year for children. I know my children enjoy it.” He concluded by saying, “But go out there and enjoy Halloween as well as the other holidays that will be coming up.”

Fact-checkers may say there is no mixed messaging coming from the government and that they have been consistent with their guidelines so this is just our opinion. We will have to wait and see if any new guidelines are released depending on new developments with Covid-19 cases.
