Keeping in step with President Trump’s extension of social distancing guidelines, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has increased the length of NM’s shutdown until May 1st. On Monday April 5th Governor Lujan Grisham extended the public health emergency order through the end of this month and possibly even longer, in a move she had previously eluded to in earlier addresses to the state. New additions to the emergency order include the closure of Automobile dealerships, liquor stores, and payday lenders as well as new restrictions for occupancy rates at grocery stores.  

“We must carry on undaunted in our fight against COVID-19,” the governor said in a statement. “These measures will help us prevent a sudden spike in infections that would overwhelm our health care system. This virus is still spreading, and we must remain vigilant about physical distancing from one another.”  Read more HERE.
