We interrupt this gardening newsletter to bring you some BREAKING NEWS:
SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – In a surprise announcement Thursday, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham says she is ending New Mexico’s indoor mask mandate. The governor says the state and country are trending in the right direction when it comes to COVID-19.
“I’m announcing … that the mask requirement for indoor settings is gone,” Gov. Lujan Grisham said Thursday. “If you’re not vaccinated, I don’t know if it’s the best idea, but it is no longer an indoor setting requirement." Several lawmakers in the same room cheered the decision while others let out audible exhales.
The Governor made the sudden declaration during a news conference centered on the end of the 2022 legislative session Thursday afternoon. When asked about masking in schools, Governor Lujan Grisham confirmed the decision also applies to students in public schools.
