ALBUQUERQUE, OCTOBER 13 — Today Gov. Lujan Grisham announced new Public Health Order restrictions scheduled to go into place on Friday.
The revised Order includes a 10pm closing time for food or drink establishments that serve alcohol, hotel occupancy reductions from 75% to 60%, limiting mass gatherings from 10 to 5 people and a mandatory 14-day quarantine for visitors from states considered high-risk.
The following is a statement from Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce’s on the new restrictions:
“It seems evident that Gov. Lujan Grisham still doesn’t have a plan to deal with our health and economic crises. Again, she’s desperately looking for answers. Her decisions are piecemeal and haphazard. These new restrictions are simply illogical. Such arbitrary changes won’t fix our state’s problems—our drowning economy, lost jobs, lost revenue or get students back to classes any sooner. The governor’s actions are senseless, lack any consistency and offer no progress to reviving our sinking state. The governor continues to demonstrate failed leadership and offers her constituents no concrete solutions to handle the pandemic.”
