New Mexico Requiring 14-Day Quarantine for Most Out-of-State Visitors

New Mexico today announced new 14-day quarantine requirements for people coming from out of state, with the exception of a few low-risk states.

“The governor’s executive order has been amended to require a period of mandatory self-quarantine for individuals arriving into New Mexico from out of state. Individuals arriving from “higher-risk states,” or those with a test positivity rate exceeding 5 percent and a test positivity rate higher than 80 per 100,000 residents, are no longer exempt from the period of mandatory self-quarantine if they test negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours of their arrival into New Mexico. All individuals arriving from those higher-risk states – a list of which is updated each Wednesday at – must self-quarantine for a period of no less than 14 days or for the duration of their stay in New Mexico, whichever is shorter.”
