Despite the push by President Donald Trump, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will not be changing the guideline it has issued for the reopening of schools in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
The announcement was made Thursday by CDC Director, Dr. Robert Redfield on “Good Morning America.”
The CDC has outlined how students can return to class in a healthy way. Some of the suggestions include keeping desks at least 6 feet apart and for students to wear masks. The guidelines also say schools should close cafeterias and playgrounds where students gather in large groups. Where needed, schools should also have physical barriers.
