The American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten sent a letter to Biden’s new education secretary and the CDC saying that she has concerns about their new guidance for schools. The CDC reduced the suggested social distancing from six feet to three feet. The AFT doesn’t seem to believe that this is good enough

Weingarten’s letter states that “…we are not convinced that the evidence supports changing physical distancing requirements at this time. Our concern is that the cited studies do not identify the baseline mitigation strategies needed to support 3 feet of physical distancing.”
