CDC Guidance Dramatically Under-Represents Classroom Student Capacity Under 6′ Social Distancing

Benjamin S. Kay, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, March 9, 2021 – “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides sample classroom layouts that promote 6-foot social distancing during in-person education. These sample 30′ by 30′ classroom layouts hold at most 9 students while complying with the 6-foot social distancing requirement. I offer an alternative layout that allows 21 students into the classroom while complying with the minimum social distancing requirement. Improved layouts reduce or even eliminate the need for rotating cohorts of students and wait-lists, allowing more days of live instruction per student.”
