Sonoma County’s school superintendent thinks more kids can be allowed in a classroom if they’re all wearing masks. Steve Harrington says social distancing between elementary students could be safely reduced from six-feet to four, based on the state public health department’s recommendation for all students to wear facial coverings. He says that would allow increasing the number of students per-classroom from just 16 up to 24. However, he will leave it up to local districts to decide. Harrington plans to argue his case tomorrow with Doctor Sundari Mase, Sonoma County Public Health Officer.
