New Mexico has country’s most COVID-19 restrictions according to survey

CLOVIS (KSMX)- A new study from WalletHub finds New Mexico has the most coronavirus restrictions in the country.

In order to identify the states that have the fewest coronavirus restrictions, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 16 relevant metrics. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the fewest restrictions. Restrictions included face mask requirements, travel and gathering restrictions, business, restaurant and childcare openings and shelter in place strictness.

Ranking each state and Washington, D.C., from the least restrictive to most, New Mexico came in 51st.
