  • Physical and/or Social Distancing:  The term “social distancing” refers to measures being taken to restrict where and when people can gather in order to stop or slow the spread of infectious disease. In general, 6 feet of separation is the distance that should be kept between people interacting within their school and/or community. 

    Each school has plans that provide the ability to limit the number of people in all campus spaces to the number that can be reasonably accommodated while maintaining a minimum of 6 feet of distance between individuals. (6 feet is the current minimum recommendation for physical distancing from the CDC, but it is important to pay attention to future modifications in public health recommendations.)  To the extent possible, and as recommended by the CDC and CDHP, schools will create smaller student/ educator cohorts to minimize the mixing of student groups throughout the day. Additionally, schools will plan to minimize movement of students, educators, and staff as much as possible throughout the course of the school day.  Schools will develop plans to limit the number of students physically reporting to school, if needed to maintain physical distance. Schools will post signage and install barriers to direct traffic around campus.
