New definition of a close contact -September 2021

"In the K–12 indoor classroom setting, the close contact definition excludes students who
were within 3 to 6 feet of an infected student (laboratory-confirmed or a clinically compatible illness)
where both the infected student and the exposed student(s) correctly and consistently wore well-fitting
masks the entire time."
 
Meaning that with masks on at all times, students will quarantine within 3 feet of the positive student.  
On hot days, or maskless days, students will quarantine within 6 feet of the positive student.
