Baltimore-area school systems won’t immediately adopt new federal, state spacing recommendations

March 30, 2021

Baltimore-area school districts say they will consider the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s newest recommendations for social distancing in schools, but stopped short of saying the guidelines will accelerate a return to in-person instruction. State officials delivered a letter Thursday to local superintendents stating Maryland has adopted the new CDC guidelines that allow for public school students to maintain just 3 feet of distance between each other while in the classroom, instead of the previous recommendation of 6 feet.
