State of NM Centralized COVID-19 information and resources for the public

Below you will find some resources you may need to access as we move through this Public Health Emergency. We are fortunate to have strong state leadership who believe in science and evidence-based solutions on how to handle this pandemic. The decisions and actions our governor and her administration have made will help keep New Mexicans as safe as possible. We will keep this page up to date with resources as they become available. We will also provide links to information about best practices, ways to stay safe and connected while we practice "social distancing" and opportunities to help one another during this pandemic.
