Important Update Regarding Mask Requirements in New Mexico

On, January 7, 2022 Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham extended the State’s Emergency Public Health Order through February 4, 2022, which includes continued mask mandates for those 2 years or older in all public indoor setting with limited exemptions such as when eating or drinking. The state of New Mexico will temporarily re-implement a statewide requirement that facemasks be worn in all public indoor spaces, with only limited exceptions, and regardless of vaccination status, to stem the state’s rising tide of COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations.

Under a public health order, the re-implemented mask requirement applies to all individuals aged 2 and older in all indoor public settings – except when eating or drinking. 

The indoor mask requirement will remain in effect through February 4, 2022. 

Businesses, houses of worship and other entities may enact stricter requirements at their discretion.


Beginning July 1, 2021, all businesses, large events, and organizations across the state may once again operate at 100% of maximum capacity.
