Restaurants and museums are mostly open but have occupancy restrictions. NM counties are color coded according to COVID risk at red, yellow, green, and turquoise with turquoise being lowest risk. Most counties are currently designated turquoise. But even at the turquoise level, indoor dining is limited to 75% of maximum capacity, museums to 50%, bars to 33%, mass gathering limits of 150 persons, etc. Outdoor venues typically can operate at an increased capacity. However the Governor has stated that these COVID restrictions will be loosened once 60% of all eligible New Mexicans have been fully vaccinated which may occur by the end of June. Currently we are at 53%.

I spent a week in Santa Fe in April. Most of the museums were open but you usually had to go online and make a reservation or buy a ticket for a set day and time so the museum could track the attendance and not exceed the occupancy limit. For popular museums such as Georgia O'Keefe and Meow Wolf, tickets were sold out a week or two ahead of time. By July, I suspect you may need to purchase tickets even earlier. Popular restaurants are more difficult to get into so make reservations ahead of time. Some restaurants were limiting service to take out. Casinos were open.

Pueblos such as Taos and Acoma are closed to the public and I doubt these will be open by July.

Was there last week. Very nice weather - but everything was packed. Super long waits at sit-down restaurants, even a hour wait at the ChikFila on Cerrillios. Seesh. We left a day early.

Might return in Sep/Oct. I'll wait until the travel frenzy is over.

How is Meow Wolf? I'm going to SF next month for the weekend.

My second time there. Am a senior so did not think I would like it but it is fun although crowded. Reminds me of the colorful 60s. NM residents get a $10 discount and seniors another $5 discount.
