Gov. Lujan Grisham’s latest health order expires on July 15. Of course, there is no sign that she will end her order until she leaves office as there has been an uptick in COVID cases in recent weeks.

New Mexico remains one of 15 states in an emergency under state law according to the National Association of State Health Boards. See the map below. While it tilts toward states with Democrat governors (including otherwise conservative Kansas and North Carolina), but Alaska, West Virginia, Georgia, and Texas all continue to be in an “emergency.”
