SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and state officials will host a remote news conference at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 17 to provide an update on COVID-19 in New Mexico. The state amended the current Public Health Order on Wednesday, increasing capacity inside essential retail spaces. The change applies to grocery stores and certain big-box retailers that generate a percentage of their revenue from consumable food and drink products. The amendment allows more customers inside stores, getting rid of the 75 customer limit, and only utilizes the percentage format.
