Default Why isolate covid cases from covid cases?

My sister in law had covid. Had mild symptoms, said she's had worse colds. That was a week and a half ago. Feeling much better now but still testing positive. She's moved into the RV to isolate from the rest of the family.

Her parents have now tested positive (no symptoms) and so has her son (my nephew). She figured she could now hang out with her son and parents since they are all positive but the local health department told her she should continue to isolate.

Just curious what the reason would be.

Just remember: pandemics and infectuous diseases are known to humanity since the beginning; Ebola, the plaque, leprosy, flu etc.
Humanity has always survived by quarantining the sick.

This is the first time in history that we are quarantining the healthy. With disastrous results.

Isolation fine, but not from people that test positive....makes no sense, but that seems typical of the "experts" these days

The higher the virus load you have, the worse your symptoms will be.

Agree, makes zero sense. Same folks that run the DMV.

Interesting, I still test positive and have no symptoms for over 10 days now. Was told. By Dr that cdc guidelines says I'm good after 7 days of no symptoms. But I might be positive for a couple of months

We did isolate everyone in the house. My son and I did get it and shared a bathroom

.

Actually humanity has not done that
Humanity has only understood what caused sicknesses for the past 120 years or so. Prior to that it was attributed to all kinds of other things. Often, "bad air". If they did isolate, they did it out of fear....... Not because of any understanding of how it could be transmitted.

Thete has been no "disastrous results". Unless you own a bar or restaurant or nail salon. Travel and cruise industry..... That the people's preference not policy. I'd be surprised if the cruise industry comes back in 5 yrs. It may all very well go under, none of its needed it's all just a luxury industry. Airlines will be back because they're a necessity.

General public ignoring medical experts thinking they know more are why this will be around for a year or more.

Reintroducing new live virus into the already infected body creates more for the white blood cells to attack, diverting from the original infection.
