What if social distancing of six feet in classrooms is not possible with all students attending?

Social distancing of at least six feet remains one of the best preventative measures for reducing the spread of COVID-19. CDC recommends that schools “space seating/desks at least six feet apart when feasible.” It is recognized that this is not always feasible and a distance of at least three feet between students, with required masking, can also partially reduce transmission.
