The CDC’s current guidelines for schools is to keep masked students seated at desks “at least 6 feet apart when feasible,” but that guidance may soon shrink down to three feet.
A new study found that coronavirus infection rates did not significantly change whether masked students or staff were put three feet or six feet apart. If the guidance changes, it would help schools, particularly public ones, to bring their students back into classrooms with limited indoor space. But the guidelines are just one piece of complex reopening plans, which have had teachers, students and parents debating over how best to bring students back in for in-person instruction.
