SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico will extend an emergency public health order through May 15 as it convenes mayors and businesses leaders to consider the first minor changes to restrictions on economic activity.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Wednesday said the state will forge its own path toward stamping out infections through increased testing and evidence-based decisions about social distancing and business activity.
New Mexico has more than 2,200 cases of COVID-19 with 71 deaths.
Lujan Grisham said her administration will continue to enforce uniform statewide health guidelines without exceptions for several counties with no confirmed cases.
