Governor Makes 14-Day Quarantine Mandatory for All Out-of-State Travelers; Extends Public Health Order
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has officially extended the state's emergency public health order through July 15, 2020. The Governor also announced a mandatory 14-day quarantine for all out-of-state travelers into New Mexico, whether traveling by air or by vehicle, with exemptions for business travelers and a small number of other types of travelers.
Face coverings are still required for all individuals in public places, and the Governor announced that the state will increase enforcement of the face-covering requirement, which may include a $100 fine for those in violation of the mandate. Businesses must continue to enforce the face covering requirement for all individuals who enter the premises.
Maximum occupancy limits, compliance with COVID-Safe Practices and permissible operations for businesses remain unchanged under the extended public health order.
