Chaves County lawmakers rally with healthcare workers

New Mexico historically has struggled with staffing in rural hospitals, and the decision by the administration to exclude weekly testing, in lieu of mandatory vaccinations has forced many healthcare facilities to deal with the potential of mass layoffs and resignations.
