On Monday, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and health officials tightened restrictions in response to the state's growing number of cases, and presence of community spread. All New Mexicans are required to stay at home except for essential outings.

New Mexicans who report symptoms of COVID-19 infection, such as fever, cough or shortness of breath, should call their health care provider or the NMDOH COVID-19 hotline immediately (1-855-600-3453).

In other COVID-19 news, the state Supreme Court today ordered a temporary moratorium on evictions for tenants who can't pay rent during the public health emergency. Under the order order, judges will stay the execution of writs of restitution property owners normally obtain and give to law enforcement to force tenants to vacate. However, tenants will need to provide the court with evidence of their current inability to pay their rent.

"New Mexicans are struggling financially as workplaces close because of the public health emergency," Chief Justice Judith K. Nakamura said in a news release. "The Court's order will provide temporary relief for families and individuals facing the possibly of losing their housing at a time when the governor and public health officials have ordered New Mexicans to remain at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19."

The court has also responded to the crisis by providing New Mexicans additional time to pay fines and fees; requiring the use of audio and video teleconferencing for court proceedings that need to continue; and allowing self-represented litigants to submit case filings to local courts by email and fax.
