New Mexico Public Education Department Secretary laid out a plan for responding to COVID-19 cases in schools.
When a person in a classroom tests positive for COVID-19: The classroom will be closed for cleaning, and students and staff in the classroom will be tested and quarantine for 14 days. The students will move to remote learning.
When cases are limited to a wing of a building: Rooms will be disinfected and students and staff will be tested and quarantine for 14 days.
When cases spread across the building: The building will be closed for cleaning and students and staff will be tested and quarantine for 14 days.
Close contacts of students who have been exposed to COVID-19 will also be asked to be tested and quarantine for 14 days.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said school districts are not mandated to provide in-person learning.
