A question for anybody to answer. When people who have tested positive reach the 14 day limit on quarantine and they have no symptoms, are they re-tested? Are they then removed from the active # list? In other words, next Friday if 5 people reach the end of their quarantine and there are 5 new cases then the net change would be zero? I trust the people reaching recovery will have to be removed from the active list or else the curve will not level off and start going down. Thanks for an answer!!
