Yesterday afternoon’s press conference on the coronavirus from New Mexico Governor Lujan-Grisham highlighted new orders impacting all New Mexicans and addressed plans for the first phase of reopening the economy. The new orders will go into effect on Saturday 16 May, though the governor emphasized that all steps for partial re-opening remain contingent on the state continuing to meet the criteria indicating it is safe to do so.
The press conference provided new information about the virus, including updates on cases and spread statewide, as well as comparative data by county and region. Information was also given about “superspreader” events and the new research regarding the different symptoms the virus manifests in children.
The following are key points from the presentation regarding statewide changes for the Phase 1 partial re-opening.
