The New Mexico Department of Health’s COVID-19 case update for Tuesday was delayed due to an outage in the state government’s internet networking, according to a press release from the governor’s office.

The outage affected the DOH’s electronic laboratory reporting system as well as other state agency websites and email systems, according to the press release. The service was restored early Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday’s COVID-19 update will be released Wednesday as soon as the reporting system is able to resume operations. The state anticipates Wednesday’s update will be released at its normal time late Wednesday afternoon.

The state Department of Information Technology is investigating the cause of the disruption.
