The New Mexico Department of Health is reporting 491 cases of COVID-19 for Sierra County. 13,592 tests have been administered since March, 2020. Total deaths related to COVID is now at 27 for the County. Reminder to please social distance, wear your mask in public and limit travel for only essential items.
SANTA FE – The state’s emergency public health order on Wednesday, December 16, was amended to accommodate slightly increased capacity inside essential retail spaces, such as grocery stores and certain other large “big box” retailers may now operate at 25 percent of maximum occupancy. Previously, essential retail spaces could operate with either a limit on maximum occupancy or 75 customers at one time, whichever was smaller. The change eliminates the latter provision.
