(WILX) - A new study sheds light on how in-person learning can be done safely.
Researchers with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looked at data from 17 k-through-12 schools in a rural Wisconsin county collected between Aug. 31 and Nov. 29, 2020.
Of the 191 COVID-19 cases among more than 5,500 students and staff, only seven were linked to in-school transmission.
The schools had implemented several measures, including groups of no more than 20 students at a time and maintaining social distancing of six feet or more. Teachers reported that more than 92% of the students wore masks.
