Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and state health officials announced big changes to the COVID-19 framework and restrictions in New Mexico. Here’s what it means for you.

Vaccines:

As of April 28, 41.6% of the state’s eligible residents were fully vaccinated. Once the state vaccinates 60% of those eligible the state will ditch the color-coded framework.

The governor said she predicts the state will meet this benchmark by the end of June, which means that if things stay on track New Mexico could reopen in nine weeks.
