In order to help prevent community spread of COVID-19, all state-operated visitor information centers are closed to the public until further notice.

The New Mexico Tourism Department (NMTD) operates visitor information centers in Santa Fe, Lordsburg, Manuelito (west of Gallup), and Glenrio (east of Tucumcari).

“The health and well-being of travelers and New Mexico residents is incredibly important to the Tourism Department, and we are committed to supporting all public health efforts of the state,” Cabinet Secretary Jen Paul Schroer said. “Temporarily closing all state-operated visitor information centers is a necessary step we needed to take to help prevent community spread of COVID-19.”

NMTD has updated its website with a COVID-19 travel alert for residents and the traveling public.

Along with state-operated visitor information centers, all state parks, state museums, historic sites and cultural institutions are also temporarily closed to the public. The directive formally took effect on March 16.
