Members share a desire to make new friends and explore their community - whether they've lived here two weeks or 20 years. While events and activities were suspended due to the pandemic, we are now exploring opportunities that allow us to be active and socialize, consistent with our governor's orders. Golf, hiking, and walking groups have resumed their activities. Zoom technology provides lectures, photo tours, and activity group meetings as a vital part of our "new normal"
SANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and state health officials on Friday announced the state of New Mexico will temporarily re-enact a statewide order closing in-person services for all non-essential activities in order to blunt the unprecedented spike of COVID-19 illnesses and to attempt to relieve dramatically escalating strain on hospitals and health care providers across the state.
The heightened restrictions statewide, enacted through an amended emergency public health order issued by the state Department of Health, will be in effect for two weeks.
New Mexicans are instructed to stay at home except for only those trips that are essential to health, safety and welfare – such as for food and water, emergency medical care, to obtain a flu shot or to obtain a test for COVID-19.
