CDC Allows Schools To Place Students Three Feet Apart

COVID Distanced Classroom

(Mitch Legan, WTIU/WFIU News)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced March 19 it would be relaxing social distancing requirements for students learning in-person.

The agency determined that students wearing masks can be placed three feet apart, rather than the six feet schools were struggling to accommodate in classrooms.

Edgewood High School Assistant Principal Jerry Bland said it was difficult to fit a full class in a room when it was required that everyone be six feet apart.

“To get students  six feet apart in you know your traditional classrooms being up to 25 to 30 students typically," Bland said. "It was just very difficult struggle to do."

Now that students can be closer and still be safe classrooms have been able to go back to capacity. Bland said since Edgewood changed from hybrid to in person, the school’s infection numbers have been low.

"I just know that since we have come back and been all in our numbers have been low,” he said.

While the distance has decreased from six to three feet in classrooms, students are still required to face forward and wear a mask.
