COVID-19 Updates


The Governor of NM announced this week that all Public Health Restrictions will be lifted starting July 1, 2021.

New Mexico will continue to follow the CDC’s guidance about face coverings. According to state officials, masks will remain required for unvaccinated individuals, and businesses may continue to require masks for employees, customers or visitors, regardless of vaccination status, at their discretion.

Can a Face Shield Replace a Mask?

The short answer is no. According to the CDC, a face shield should be used in addition to a face mask, and not in place of one. The reason: a face shield is primarily used for eye protection, hence the use of face shields in manufacturing and construction facilities. When worn on its own, a face shield doesn’t form enough of a seal around your nose and mouth to truly block out harmful particles. While plastic shields are a great barrier for splashes and sprays, wearing one alone does not provide adequate protection of your airway. – September 25, 2020 RS
