In the Red--All 33 New Mexico counties restricted at the highest level

An update to the state's COVID-19 status today might be best described as "better but not great." All 33 of New Mexico's counties emerged in the "red" category—the worst one—of the state's new red-to-green COVID-19 framework today.

The criteria includes a daily per-capita case rate of eight or less per 100,000 and a test positivity rate of 5% or less. Counties meeting one criteria can move to "yellow," which expands various restrictions, such as capacity limits for businesses and ability to have indoor dining. Counties must meet both criteria to move to green, which has even more expanded opportunities.

The state will be updating the map indicating counties' status every other Wednesday. The next update is scheduled for Dec. 30.

San Miguel County, previously the only county meeting yellow criteria, saw its test positivity rate rise above 5% to 6.6%.
