COVID-19 patients Safe Extubation

What is the safest approach to extubate patients COVID-19?
Either to avoid re-intubation and also to avoid spread

We have extubated two patients so far in our COVID unit and they were extubated under a plastic drape and the providers were wearing PPE. Once extubated the patients were placed on simple facemask.
