Public Health Orders Remain In Place

On Friday, the New Mexico Department of Health renewed public health orders related to COVID-19, including a requirement to wear masks in public spaces and vaccination requirements for some workers. Those orders are attached.

The public health orders come as case numbers reach highs not seen since 2020 and as hospitals around the state continue to operate under crisis standards of care. The orders also underscore important updated guidelines which have reduced the timeline for isolation and quarantine from ten days to five, with the inclusion of a well-fitting mask for an additional five days.
