Corpus Christi ISD Talks New CDC Social Distancing Guidelines

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The Centers for Disease Control on Friday relaxed their social distancing guidelines for schools. The CDC now said it was safe for students to be three feet apart as long as masks are worn and teachers should still adhere to the six-foot rule.

Corpus Christi Independent School District officials said they are reviewing the new guidelines but no immediate changes will be made.

“All changes for students will be gradual,” said Leann Libby of CCISD. “All adult protocols remain in place.”

Libby stated that the security measures they used, including hybrid learning, desk shields, and masks, were effective.

“We will review the current CDC guidelines to see how they fit into our established protocols to protect health while supporting learning,” said Libby.

Libby said it was important that all students and staff feel safe on campus.
