New Mexico health officials today reported 94 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the statewide total so far to 203,823. The health department has designated 191,358 of those cases as recovered.

Bernalillo County had 29 new cases, followed by Santa Fe County with 11, nine of which were from the Southside 87507 ZIP code, which ranked first in the state today for the most new cases. San Juan County had nine new cases.

The health department’s weekly epidemiology report looking at geographical trends shows higher daily case rates in Colfax, Guadalupe Rio Arriba, San Juan and Torrance counties, with Guadalupe County showing a 38.8 average daily case rate per 100,000. The state’s red-to-green county-level framework sets daily case rates over a 14-day period at 10 or fewer as a target, although Guadalupe County, like all of New Mexico’s counties, is currently operating under the least restrictive measures and won’t be re-evaluated until the end of June. By that point, state officials aim to reach a 60% full vaccination rate and end the county-level evaluations.

Currently, 66.5% of New Mexicans have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 57.1% are fully vaccinated. In Santa Fe County, 75.2% have had at least one dose and 65.2% are fully inoculated. Los Alamos County currently leads the state, with 80.1% of residents fully vaccinated, while Roosevelt County has the fewest: 27.3%.

According to a news release from the governor’s office, as of the end of the day June 8, 372,774 vaccinated New Mexicans have opted in to the Vax 2 the Max Sweepstakes since it was first announced on June 1. The Early Childhood Education and Care Department today also announced that KinderCare and Learning Care Group—the latter operates 14 La Petite Academy locations in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Bernalillo and Santa Fe—will both offer free child care to all parents and caregivers getting vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus or recovering from vaccination from now until July 4. The free child care is part of a nationwide vaccine incentive program.

The state today also reported five additional deaths, three of which were recent and two of which were from Santa Fe County, bringing the total number of fatalities in the county to 149, according to SFR’s records (the health department’s dashboard currently lists 147, the total as of the county’s last reported death on May 25, but likely had just not been updated as of press time). Statewide, there have now been 4,292 deaths.

As of today, 100 people are hospitalized with COVID-19—11 more than yesterday.*
