- And looking ahead to summer, the Centers for Disease Control has new guidance for kids at day camp. The CDC says camp should put children in small cohorts, as they call them. And within those groups, they can get within three feet of each other, but children should stay six feet apart while eating and drinking.

The agency recommends everyone wear masks at all times, with few exceptions. Camps are encouraged to hold activities outside as much as possible, of course. The CDC advises sleepaway camps to require proof of a negative COVID test for campers who are too young to have been vaccinated.
