Bulletin report

The governor's office says the indoor mask mandate will remain in place when the state's new public health order goes into effect on Friday, Oct. 15.

"Hundreds of new Covid-19 cases are reported every day and hospitals around the state are close to crisis standards of care," the governor's office stated in an e-mail to the Buletin. "It's important that New Mexicans continue to mask up in order to slow the spread. The best tool to move us forward and protect New Mexicans is getting vaccinated."
