Updated Red-Yellow-Green-Turquoise criteria now in effect, statewide COVID-19 map updated

Half of counties advance to a less restrictive level; Nearly every New Mexico county now Turquoise or Green

SANTA FE – The New Mexico Department of Health on Friday announced the updated statewide COVID-19 map, with updated key health metrics used to assign risk levels to counties under the Red-Yellow-Green COVID-19 framework now in effect. The updates to the criteria, announced by the governor and state officials on Wednesday, are made as the state’s nation-leading vaccine distribution effort is over time likely to reduce the number of asymptomatic people seeking out and receiving tests for COVID-19.
