Students, staff and bus drivers could also be subject to daily temperature screenings. 

Meals would be served individually in the classroom or lunches would be staggered to ensure kids are eating with the group they are already around.

The task force is also recommending that social distancing be practiced, and face coverings be worn. 

If someone contracts COVID-19, the task force recommends that the school close for two days while its disinfected and contact tracing is done.

The recommendations still have to be approved by the New Mexico Public Education Department, the governor and health experts before schools make a final decision about reopening.
