In order to support Taos’ small businesses and our local economy, it is imperative that we all do our part to follow COVID-Safe Practices. This means that everyone is required to wear face coverings in public and physical distancing (a min. of a 6 ft. radius between all persons) is required as well.
The Town of Taos is serious about slowing the spread of the infection and keeping everyone safe – it’s for your health and ours!
State of New Mexico Public Health Order
Updated November 12, 2020
Like communities across New Mexico, the country and the world, Taos is responding to the COVID-19 outbreak. On November 12, 2020, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced updates to the Public Health Order.
Highlights from the Current Public Health Order
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.
