The state Economic Recovery Council, a group formed to advise the governor on the recovery of New Mexico’s economy in the wake of the unprecedented public health emergency caused by COVID-19, voted unanimously this week to endorse a preliminary plan for reopening the New Mexico economy, starting with a preparation phase that begins Friday, May 1.
The council is composed of 15 business and labor leaders representing a variety of industries from around the state. It is chaired by Christina Campos, administrator of the Guadalupe County Hospital in Santa Rosa, and Brian Moore, co-owner of the Ranch Market in Clayton.
The preparation phase that begins Friday extends the stay-at-home instruction to all individuals through May 15; however, it also includes certain modifications, including the reopening of curbside and delivery operations for non-essential retailers, outdoor recreational opportunities including golf courses and day use at some state parks, firearm sales by appointment, veterinary and pet services and other first steps.
