Extension of restrictions
In an announcement made on Monday,6 April, Governor Lujan-Grisham extended, until April 30th, the current regulations governing socially distancing, staying home, and other measures that help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In addition to the existing restrictions, the Governor ordered new guidelines for those essential businesses that remain open, including new practices to limit capacity and protect workers. She also mandated closure of all automobile dealerships, payday lending institutions, and liquor stores. The announcement, which appears on the New Mexico state website, continues to strongly encourage everyone to limit outings and use face coverings in public.
Building a list of free wifi access
As classes and work have moved online, the need for internet access for everyone has increased. This means that the many residents who do not have internet connectivity at home will rely on free wifi access points to complete school assignments, work from home, and get updated emergency health information. To respond to this need, the El Valle Community Center is building a list of free wifi access points in Las Vegas and surrounding communities. Please call the individual facility if you have questions about the connectivity.
The Carnegie Library in Las Vegas - The wifi signal can be accessed outside the library in surrounding grounds. Instructions for login are posted on the front door. 505-426-3304
