There are lots of questions about the new CDC guidelines concerning the appropriate amount of time to quarantine for those who test positive for COVID-19.
News 12 Connecticut's Suzanne Goldklang spoke with Dr. Greg Buller at Bridgeport Hospital about how to figure out where you fit in.
Dr. Buller explains the five-day guideline fits people who had minimal symptoms at most. 
"You have a little bit of a runny nose, you might have a little bit of a sore throat, you test positive and within a few days those have gone away.  Folks who were more seriously ill are a different story," says Buller. 
When deciding when to return to work, people should speak with their employer and doctor to determine a plan.
