ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.-Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham discussed her new public health order, which takes effect May 16.
The order requires every New Mexican to wear a mask or face covering while out in public to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
People who do not have a mask can request one from the state.
Gov. Lujan Grisham made changes to what she announced on Wednesday. She initially said places of worship could open up to 10% capacity. But the change says places of worship can open to 25% capacity.
Also, all retailers can reopen with up to 25% capacity. Previously, some retailers were only allowed to have 20% capacity.
The changes do not apply to San Juan County, Cibola County or McKinley County.
The governor also reminded vulnerable populations to stay home. She said vulnerable populations include:
People 65 years and older
People with underlying medical conditions
People who live in a nursing home or long-term care facility
