I thought that latest from the CDC was a 5 day confinement and not ten days as in the past.

From what I've been reading, either number is somewhat arbitrary. It depends on a number of variables, including whether or not you were vaxxed, yourself test + (vs. only been exposed to someone who tested +), have symptoms, will be around immunocompromised folks (e.g., in an old folks home), etc.

In particular, I'd want to (and did) test negative at least 2 days in a row after symptoms subsided before mixing with others, regardless of # days isolated.
