Anne Arundel County Schools Weigh Options Over CDC’s 3 Feet Social Distancing Guidelines For K-12

March 31, 2021
At Indian Cave State Park in Nebraska, there is a small village that has been restored, one building is an old-time schoolhouse – not much to look at from the outside but well-maintained inside.

New CDC guidelines shorten COVID social distancing guidelines for kids in classrooms to now stay three feet apart with masks on instead of six feet. Anne Arundel County school board officials met Tuesday to discuss the announcement. “I think the three feet distancing guidelines gives us a little bit of wiggle room,” George Arlotto, Superintendent of Anne Arundel County Schools, said. During a virtual meeting, the school board discussed the new changes, which now says elementary school students can sit three feet apart inside classrooms with masks on regardless of community transmission.
