Similar to the first option, the foot bumb is even better if you want to avoid any sort of touch of the hands and arms.
Wave to each other
Simple but effective. You can do this as a whole class or wave at each student individually as they enter the classroom in the morning.
Similar to "jazz hands," spirit fingers area a dance movement of the fingers with palms out and fingers moving quickly back and forth. Look it up on Youtube for a fun demonstration!
Curtsey to each other
This could be a fun way to teach your students about historic times when this was a common greeting among royals at castles, for example.
Salute your friends
Use this form of greeting when talking abou the miliary or on special holidays like Memorial Day or Veteran's Day.
Blow a Kiss
Why not blow your students a kiss? This works especially well for young students.
Bow to each other
This could be a great way of introducing a lesson on different cultures to your students as it is a common greeting in many different countries around the world, particularly in Asia.
Last but not least, the air hug might bring a smile on your students' faces as they probably haven't hugged their friends in quite a while!
