LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — The hybrid reopening of New Mexico public schools will come amid a statewide nursing shortage, adding to the anxiety of parents and teachers.
The Las Cruces Sun-News reports guidelines released by the New Mexico Public Education Department released last month have turned the spotlight onto school nurses.
Some schools in New Mexico are reporting a lack of nurses. New Mexico health officials reported Sunday an additional 203 coronavirus cases but no more known deaths.
That puts the statewide total of confirmed COVID-19 infections at 13,256 with the death toll remaining at 513.
