COVID Safe Practices for all New Mexicans

Living in a COVID-positive world requires discipline from all of us. In order for the rate of spread of COVID-19 to decrease enough for businesses to safely reopen, it is imperative that New Mexicans stay home as much as possible.

Stay Home

  • In general, stay at home: avoid unnecessary travel and always stay at home when you are sick (except for medical emergencies).
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Provide for all meetings to take place remotely whenever possible.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Watch for symptoms of COVID-19:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Loss of taste or smell

If You Must Go Out:

  • Individuals are required to wear a face covering or mask in public spaces except when eating, drinking or swimming, or unless otherwise advised by a health care provider.
  • Maintain a 6-foot distance from others.
  • Avoid gatherings.
  • Protect vulnerable populations by finding ways to connect without face-to-face contact.
