In some classroom drawings that were presented, there was a distance of less than 6 feet between student desks. Is that the case for all classrooms? (Added July 20)
The recommendations of the Safe Campus Task force and the Protect Purdue plan, in combination with the work of physical facilities, the Medical Advisory Team and scientific evidence, suggest that wearing a mask and maintaining appropriate social distancing are the two most important variables in reducing the spread of the virus. With everyone wearing a mask in classroom spaces, a distance of 6 feet between students is considered the upper end for social distance requirement. The arrangement of each classroom space will be modified and an “X” will be placed on the floor where the student chairs should remain or seats will be cordoned off to meet the appropriate social distance and de-densification requirements for each classroom.
