DPNM Statement on New Restrictions Due to COVID-19

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham today announced prohibitions on indoor dining and out-of-state visitors to state parks, due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in New Mexico and across the nation. These closures are in addition to New Mexico’s efforts to increase testing, laws requiring masks in public places, and a mandatory fourteen-day quarantine for out-of-state visitors.

In the past 16 days, New Mexico has seen a 79% increase in COVID-19 cases across our state. Experts predict that deaths in New Mexico could double in as little as five weeks if we do not take drastic measures to address this spike.

DPNM Chair Marg Elliston released the following statement regarding the governor’s decision to restrict indoor dining and visits to state parks:

“As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in New Mexico, it’s clear that the best course of action is to restrict situations that create a high risk of people coming into close contact with each other. We’re proud to have a leader like Governor Lujan Grisham who is listening to the experts and taking the necessary steps to keep New Mexicans safe.”
