We knew when we began our methodical reopening process that we would be introducing risk, and to counter that risk we would all have to amend our behavior and take every individual precaution to begin to live in a COVID-positive world and sustain that process. Unfortunately, our state’s dramatically rising case numbers reflect that those behavior modifications and precautions have either not been taken seriously or taken up by enough people.

This virus does not discriminate. But we know prolonged exposure without face-coverings – as is the case in high-contact indoor settings – is a significant risk factor. And if we are to safely reopen our schools this fall, if we are to prevent further illness and hospitalization and death in our state, we must eliminate as much of the risk as we can.

As of today, indoor seating at restaurants and breweries is again prohibited. Patio or outdoor seating may continue at 50% of maximum occupancy, adhering to COVID-safe practices.

Additionally, gyms and other close contact businesses like tattoo shops and salons are now limited to 25% of maximum occupancy, adhering to COVID-safe practices.

State parks are open only to New Mexico residents – no out-of-state visitors.

I know this news is a tough pill to swallow for many New Mexicans. This public health crisis has been an overwhelming challenge for all of us – but we must be united against COVID-19 and take every possible action to prevent the virus from continuing to wreak havoc on our lives.
