Officially? You reinstall.

Unofficially you can probably yum remove cetos-stream-release then yum distro-sync but you may need to clean up other bits like the kernel which it won't downgrade because it will not touch the running one.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
