As of Thursday, 100 people are hospitalized in New Mexico for COVID-19.

The number of New Mexicans age 16 and older who have completed a vaccine series is 961,945, or 57.2% of the population. More than 1.1 million have had at least one dose, or 66.6%.

In Chaves County, 36.3% of residents 16 and older have completed a vaccine series and 41.5% have received at least one dose.

Chaves County, along with all other New Mexico counties, is in the Turquoise Level of the state’s COVID-19 risk assessment system, and will stay there until 60% of New Mexicans are fully vaccinated. At that point, the state will graduate from the color-coded risk system and open fully from COVID-related restrictions.
