Additional lifting of restrictions (part 2 of Phase 1) may take place in early June.

Three counties will not be able to start Phase 1 yet due to increasing infection rates: McKinley, San Juan, and Cibola.

“As the state opens up and our risk increases, the only way we save lives and keep the gating criteria where it is is if we’re all wearing face coverings,” the governor said. “It’s not a guarantee against the virus, but it really helps slow the spread, and that’s why we’re mandating it.”

"A recent study found that if 80 percent of us adopt a simple homemade face mask, we could reduce deaths from COVID-19 by 17-45 percent over two months."

I don't know if customers not wearing masks will be prevented from entering buildings. I still see a few people not wearing coverings at grocery stores.
The co-op doesn't stop people, if they're not wearing a mask. I just went to a UPS Store, and they told me I couldn't come in without a mask, but I had my scarf around my neck; I'd just forgotten to put it on. So I did, and they let me in. It seems to be up to each business, as to how strictly they'll enforce mask-wearing, but that may change as soon as the new order goes into effect.

Very disturbing:

“Coronavirus cases are increasing amongst children in New Mexico.

"In children pay attention to abdominal symptoms, or nausea and vomitting," said David R. Scrase, secretary of the New Mexico Human Services Department.

The state says New Mexico now with the 2nd highest rate of COVID-19 infections amongst children in the country.

"We're at 13 percent. The U.S. average is 3.2 percent, so the infection rate in children in New Mexico is 4 times higher," Scrase said.“

Oh, Las Cruces. People just don't get it.

I was in a store the other day, hoping to buy something essential to maintaining good health during the pandemic. Someone has to hand it to you from behind a counter. The young lady behind the counter was wearing a mask. She reached up, pulled the mask away from her face several inches, sneezed 3-5 times rapidly at the now-useless mask and awkwardly tried to cover her mouth with her hands holding the mask, then she put the mask back on. I stood there for a few seconds in utter disbelief, and walked out.

Simply unbelievable. i wonder what she thought the mask was for?

I wonder what, exactly, is going on over there in San Juan and McKinley counties? Are people not wearing masks, or are there a lot of people, that live together in extended-family units, making it difficult to self-isolate? Is there anyone from the state health/human services dept. co-ordinating with the tribes and communities, to figure out how to mitigate this high rate of spread?

OK, here's one report from late April. A doctor says, there's a high percentage of people with underlying health conditions, mainly diabetes, but also obesity can be a factor making people vulnerable.

Just based on what I've read in the AJ, 40-45% of the deaths in those counties have been in nursing homes.

All of the above and some tribal members don't even have running water, from what I've heard, so sanitation is not what you'd want.


And if it anything like Las Cruces, you can't buy hand sanitzer gel.

May 19:
"Gov. strikes back at GOP state senators urging lifting of health orders"

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham refused Republican state senators’ calls to fully reopen the economy Tuesday, blasting their demands as “reckless” and “anti-scientific bluster.”

Thirteen of New Mexico’s 16 Republican state senators sent a letter to the governor Monday urging her to completely lift all public health orders by Wednesday morning.

They argued the impact of the novel coronavirus has not “risen to the levels initially thought by many experts.”

Lujan Grisham lambasted the senators’ demands as an “utter failure and unflinching surrender to the virus ravaging our communities” and rejected the notion the current U.S. COVID-19 death toll of approximately 90,000 people could be conceived of as a “mild or moderate outcome.”

In New Mexico, the Governor’s Office reported Tuesday that 276 New Mexicans had died from the respiratory illness.

“Your reckless demand for a full-scale ‘re-opening,’ ” the governor wrote, “serves only to inflame misinformed public opinion, which is to risk further illness and likely death, death that will be lonely and all the more tragic because it was and is within our power to prevent.”
