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 re-categorized and permitted to operate at limited capacities depending on the county’s risk level. Find a full list of categories and definitions here: http://bit.ly/3ppP2oB
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.
Remember: Masks must continue to be worn around anyone from outside your household and physical distance must continue to be maintained.
