Lujan Grisham extends public health order to August 26

Surprising absolutely no one, Gov. Lujan Grisham has (yet again) extended her public health order relating to COVID 19 for another few weeks, this time until August 26.

There are some changes in the latest order to limit the amount of reporting necessary by businesses and other entities, but the fact remains that Lujan Grisham shows no signs of abandoning her “emergency” powers.

An interesting quote from David Scrase as the Gov.’s COVID advisor attempts to justify what can only be described as a failed response to COVID by the Lujan Grisham Administration, “Over the past eight months we have excelled in implementing the tools to minimize the spread of COVID-19 such as: vaccines, boosters, home testing and oral treatments that have helped reduce hospitalizations and deaths.”

Sadly, New Mexico ranks 6th highest in deaths per capita due to COVID and New Mexico was ranked 3rd-worst among US states by the definitive study of state COVID responses:

  1. The study cited ranks NM 50th in excess deaths. This is the best indicator for how overall health was impacted by government policies – you have to look at the other health impacts of govt. responses, not just the COVID counts alone. This ranking shows the abject failure of the “tools” cited by Dr. Scrase. All the lockdowns, school closures, and restrictions on business occupancy objectively failed by the measure that matters most – how many people died. 49 states had fewer excess deaths than NM.

    The emergency powers used by the governor have objectively failed, as shown by the fact that 49 states performed better in terms of overall deaths. It is past time for everyone to call for an end to these “emergency powers” which have been used to ill effect.
