The Centers for Disease Control has confirmed that it’s studying the impact of lowering social distancing requirements at schools from six to three feet.
Experts at the CDC say that under certain circumstances three feet of social distancing can be effective at reducing the spread of COVID-19.
This comes as vaccinations continue to increase.
“There’s 100% of data that the most effective learning for students is in school with their teachers, that’s much more effective than any other model we could offer,” Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School District Superintendent Gene Mancuso told News10NBC.
