New Mexico Health Secretary Kathy Kunkel will strengthen her previously issued public health order to include additional mandatory closures and guidelines to stem the spread of COVID-19 in New Mexico. The Village of Ruidoso will comply with the Public Health Order.
The new public health emergency order, which will take effect Thursday, March 19, prohibits:
Gatherings of more than 10 people
Restaurants, bars, breweries, eateries and other food establishments must close to dine-in customers; take-out and home delivery are permitted.
Hotels, motels and other places of lodging shall not operate at more than 50 percent of maximum occupancy. This restriction does not apply to operations providing lodging to health care workers who are engaged in the provision of care to New Mexico residents or those businesses providing temporary housing to individuals employed and working in New Mexico.
