NEW PUBLIC HEALTH ORDER EFFECTIVE TODAY FEBRUARY 24TH, 2021

Today an updated public health order goes into effect, permitting more day-to-day and commercial activities to be conducted safely as New Mexicans continue to drive down transmission rates and the state’s COVID-19 outlook continues to improve.

Businesses previously categorized as “close-contact recreational facilities” are now recategorized and permitted to operate at limited capacities depending on the county’s risk level.

The new Turquoise Level will enable communities that have remained at the Green Level for two consecutive two-week periods to operate with the least-restrictive occupancy limitations, including indoors. The Green, Yellow, and Red Levels remain in place with updated capacity restrictions reflecting the progress New Mexicans have made in our fight against COVID-19.
