- Effective Saturday, May 16, all New Mexicans will be required to wear a mask or face-covering in public settings. 44% of those with COVID-19 contract the virus from someone who shows no symptoms. It is your duty as a member of your community to protect your fellow New Mexicans.
- A new modified public health order will go into effect Saturday, May 16, easing into some re-openings to begin moving into Phase 1. What changes? All retailers may operate at 25% of fire code capacity – but COVID-safe practices MUST be in place in order to operate. High-intensity contact services remain closed.
- Opening retailers MUST adhere to COVID-safe practices, protecting both employees and customers, as well as the greater public. Responsibility is not optional.
- The Phase One easings do not yet apply to the northwestern public health region (Cibola, McKinley, and San Juan counties) where the risk of virus spread remains too high. The northwestern region may enter the Preparation Phase on May 16th, continuing to stay home, non-essential retailers allowed to do curbside or delivery.
- Testing is available statewide. We want all New Mexicans currently working to get tested for COVID-19. Find a testing site near you here: https://cvprovider.nmhealth.org/directory.html
The spread of the virus dictates the timeline, and the actions of New Mexicans dictate the spread of the virus. Continue to stay home. Do not gather in groups.

Based on CDC guidelines, if you think you may have COVID-19 and are experiencing minor symptoms, Gerald Champion recommends you self-quarantine at home for at least 14 days and consult with your healthcare provider. For severe symptoms, call ahead to your local Emergency Center prior to arriving or dial 911 if you need emergent care.
There are a limited number of COVID-19 test kits available nationwide. To determine who gets tested for the virus, Gerald Champion follows Public Health guidelines, which includes evaluating for relevant symptoms, travel history and potential exposure.
If a patient is confirmed with COVID-19, the decision to hospitalize the patient or recommend self-quarantine will be made in consultation with healthcare providers.
