The following map is from MultiState. It shows that New Mexico is one of JUST 5 states in the US with a universal indoor mask mandate (Louisiana has dropped their mask mandate):
As KOAT Channel 7 notes in this news story, despite its mask policy and even high vaccination rates, New Mexico is seeing an uptick in COVID 19 cases and hospitalizations.

This Governor needs to realize she can’t control this Virus!! Drop the Mandates immediately! Let New Mexicans go about their business and work free of ridiculous Mandates of ANY kind!! This is still the LAND OF THE BRAVE HOME OF THE FREE!!
The governor nor her advisor Scarse are not the sharpest tacks in the box. Keep doing the same thing over and over and see how it works out.
This is simply about power anymore, the rate per 100,000 is nine time’s lower in Florida and six times lower in Texas than it is here, neither state has any mandates. What the Governor is doing is convoluted, we have been through enough, drop all mandates NOW!
MLG mask mandate and restrictive covid policies will improve Ronchetti’s 2024 prospects
