New Mexico Governor: "We Can Not Allow Another Wave"

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and state officials urged New Mexicans today to abide by the current health orders as COVID-19 case counts and infection rates continue to rise across all parts of the state.

Today, the state surpassed its gating criteria for 168 or fewer new daily cases over a rolling seven-day average and hit 171; the statewide effective rate of transmission, which health officials want to hold at 1.05 or less, was at 1.27 as of Sept. 30.
