New Mexico will absolutely reopen on July 1 with no pandemic restrictions
All businesses will be able to operate at 100 percent and all mass gathering restrictions will be lifted.
All New Mexico counties will remain at the Turquoise Level of restrictions through July 1.
“All in all, this is an exciting announcement. We are summarizing and setting a date for the final introduction of the new normal: July 1st, ”said Lujan Grisham. “We have made incredible progress and I am proud of New Mexico. The simple fact is: we are fighting this pandemic. The best is yet to come. “
The latest data from the New Mexico Department of Health shows that 59.4% of eligible New Mexico residents are fully vaccinated. The state expects delayed dates for New Mexico residents who have been vaccinated in Texas or through federal agencies.
As a result, state health officials said there was a margin of error in vaccination data and the state was “good at it on the 60 percent vaccination target.”
New Mexico will continue to adhere to CDC guidelines on face covering. According to state officials, masks will remain required for unvaccinated individuals, and companies may, at their discretion, continue to require masks for employees, customers, or visitors, regardless of vaccination status.
