CDC Relaxes School Social Distancing Rules: 3 Feet

Briarwood Elementary School is located at 151 Briarwood Road, Florham Park

MORRIS COUNTY — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released new social distancing guidelines for school districts.

According to the CDC, students must be separated by three feet, not the standard six feet. In order to do so, students must wear masks — that’s crucial.

Adults must continue to stay at least six feet apart from each other in schools, and they must keep that distance when they’re interacting with children.
