Effective May 16, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham requires all New Mexicans to wear a face covering in public spaces, with exceptions for eating, drinking and exercising.

Cloth face coverings can be made out of household items and are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. N-95s and surgical masks must be reserved for medical personnel only. Cloth face coverings are intended to minimize the spread of the virus from people who don’t show symptoms of the virus, transmitting it to others. Remember, face coverings should be used in addition to washing your hands and staying home.
