On April 30, 2020, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) announced during a press conference that the state’s stay-at-home order was extended through May 15. Prior to the announcement, the stay-at-home order was in effect through April 30.
Lujan Grisham also announced during the same press conference a few changes to her directives, effective May 1. Starting that day:
- Nonessential retailers can operate via curbside pickup and delivery service where permitted.
- State parks can reopen on a modified basis, but camping is still prohibited.
- Pet services, such as grooming, veterinary care, and boarding, can resume
- Golf courses can reopen for golf only. Food and retail services are prohibited
- Gun stores can reopen for background checks only
Under the order, in-restaurant dining, fitness centers, salons, theaters, and casinos are still closed. The stay-at-home remains in effect through May 15, mass gatherings are still prohibited, and a 14-day quarantine remains in effect for out-of-state travelers.
