MARCH 18: The Governor has announced a new Public Emergency Order that requires all restaurants in New Mexico to close for in-door dining. Starting tomorrow, food service is to be limited to take-out and delivery. Also, as part of the order, shopping malls, recreational facilities, movie theaters, spas and athletic clubs are ordered to close. Casinos, not operated by Tribal authorities, bars and horse racing operations must also close. Finally, hotels and motels should go to 50 percent of capacity. All of this through April 10th, although that date may be reevaluated if the spread of Covid-19 continues. According to the order, those who defy it could face civil penalties.
