Queerty: The CDC just rolled back a bunch of COVID guidelines and folks are joking to keep from screaming

Listen to this article

The latest changes to the COVID guidelines out of the CDC have left some joking that they’ve given up entirely.

Official changes to coronavirus precautions were released yesterday, with an even more lax handling of exposures and vaccination:

The update isn’t a huge overhaul of the existing guidance, but it does represent an increasing focus on individuals making their own decisions about their level of risk and how they want to mitigate that risk, said Dr. Marcus Plescia, chief medical officer for the @ASTHO.

A good number of updates have already been made loosening the reins on pandemic precautions in the past couple years, so this move isn’t so much a surprise as a frustration for some.

Doubly frustrating is this move’s timing, as many feel that the new health emergency of Monkeypox is also being highly mishandled.

All of this together has a lot of folks firing off jokes to hold it together.

To be fair, some of the jokes really hit:

“So that’s it — after two and a half years of the pandemic — ‘so long, good luck’”?

CDC: “I don’t recall saying good luck”
