New Mexico health officials today reported 196 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the statewide total so far to 200,232. The health department has designated 185,385 of those cases as recovered.

Bernalillo County had 68 new cases, followed by San Juan County with 29 and Doña Ana County with 18. Santa Fe County had six new cases.

The state’s weekly geographic epidemiology report shows higher daily case rates in some parts of the state, measured over seven days per 100,000 population, with Quay and DeBaca counties at 56.1 and 54.3, respectively, followed by San Juan County at 37.

The state remains just slightly over its new gating criteria for case and spread rates, but otherwise is meeting all the metrics.

The state also announced three additional deaths; there have now been 4,111 fatalities.

As of today, 113 people are hospitalized with COVID-19—28 fewer than yesterday.*

Currently, 60.1% of New Mexicans have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 48.2% are fully vaccinated. In Santa Fe County, 70.8% have had at least one dose and 56.9% are fully inoculated.

The health department announced earlier today it will be partnering with New Mexico United and Western Sky Community Care to provide COVID-19 vaccinations at every home game starting at the May 15 season opener at Rio Grande Credit Union Field at Isotopes Park. Vaccinations will be available for up to 150 ticket holders in the New Mexico United tailgate lot. Western Sky Community Care will be dispensing the Pfizer vaccine, and ticket holders receiving their first COVID-19 vaccination will also receive a voucher for a free ticket to a future New Mexico United match. Attendees can pre-register for their vaccination ahead of time at VaccineNM.org, but no appointment is necessary.
