Updated CDC Guidance On Physical distancing In Schools

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its physical distancing guidelines for children in schools from 6 feet to 3 feet.

The CDC has previously said schools should try to maintain at least 6 feet of distance between children, but in light of new data, the agency is now recommending most students maintain at least 3 feet of distance based on new studies it says support distancing of 3 feet between students, so long as everyone is wearing a mask and other prevention measures are in place.
