Gov. Lujan Grisham issues stay-at-home instructions to stop spread of COVID-19

Source: KOB TV

SANTA FE, N.M.- Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced new restrictions Monday to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The governor is instructing New Mexicans to remain in their home except for outings that are "absolutely necessary for health, safety and welfare." The order restricts gatherings of five or more people in outdoors spaces.

The order, which goes into effect at 8 a.m. Tuesday, closes all non-essential businesses and requires 100 percent of the state's non-essential workforce to work from home.

“Does this order mean you cannot walk your dog? No. Does it mean you can’t go for a jog? No. But you should not do those things in a group – and you should be home as soon as possible,” the governor said. “This social isolation strategy will only work if we all undertake it to the greatest extent we can. That boils down to one thing: Stay home.”

3. Looks reasonable.

People have already gotten the message. This was the first weekend in the War Zone where I didn't hear a single siren. In fact, I haven't heard them since about last Tuesday, and there was only one.

The street here is nearly deserted, cars are few and the bozo with the unmuffled Harley hasn't been roaring home at 2:30 AM (nah, don't hate him, I'm usually awake anyway).

I just hope people have gotten the messages about handwashing and not touching their faces with their fingers. Avoiding crowds is good, but handwashing and hygiene are essentia.

5. Traffic has been wonderful

I work for one of the hospitals here in abq fixing computers and I have to drive all over town to the clinics I support. It’s been nice with the traffic not as bad out there. Reminds me when I was in my 20s and abq was a little smaller.
