Explore the CDC’s school reopening guidelines in augmented reality

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has promoted preparing schools for the safe return of students to the classroom this fall amid the continuing coronavirus pandemic across the United States. The CDC has shared its recommended strategies to slow the spread of COVID-19 in schools, which includes measures like social distancing, wearing masks and practicing proper hand hygiene.

The CDC suggests providing physical guides, such as tape on the floor, to remind people to stay at least six feet apart. Students and staff should wash their hands or use hand sanitizer frequently, and staff should disinfect surfaces often to prevent the spread of the virus in the classroom. Students should also learn how to properly wear masks, which is especially important when they’re indoors and when social distancing is difficult.
