CURRY COUNTY IS NOW IN THE GREEN

Today marks another update for the County by County Map. Multiple New Mexico counties have improved in the state’s Red to Green Framework for safe reopening.

Thirteen counties — San Juan, McKinley, Santa Fe, Union, Los Alamos, Quay, De Baca, Roosevelt, Lea, Socorro, Catron, Sierra and Hidalgo — are in the new Turquoise level. It’s the least restrictive reopening category in New Mexico.

Ten counties are in Green:

  • Rio Arriba, Taos, Colfax, Mora, Torrance, Guadalupe, Curry, Lincoln, Chaves, and Eddy.

There are no longer any counties in the Red category. The remainder of the counties are in Yellow. The next level evaluation will occur on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.
