Over the weekend, New Mexico health officials reported a total of 401 new positive test results for COVID-19: 209 on Saturday and 192 on Sunday. The statewide total thus far is now 11,809.

San Juan County had 112 new cases over the weekend, followed by Bernalillo County with 82. Both McKinley and Doña Ana counties had 51 new cases total.

Santa Fe County also continued to report higher numbers of cases than in previous weeks, with eight new cases reported Saturday and 10 on Sunday, bringing the total here thus far to 228, with 125 designated as recovered by the health department.

The state also announced three more deaths, two on Saturday and one on Sunday. There have now been 492 fatalities.

As of today, 114 people are hospitalized—eight fewer than yesterday—and the health department has designated 5,264 cases as recovered.*

While New Mexico has had decreasing numbers of deaths and hospitalizations, in light of its increasing number of cases, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham last week announced that Phase 2 re-openings—slated for July 1—had been paused. The COVID Exit Strategy website, which tracks states' progress in curtailing spread of the disease and is often referred to in weekly state news conferences, is now depicting New Mexico in the "red" again. Red states are "trending poorly," according to the site's criteria. New Mexico had previously been one of the few states in the green.
