As of Friday, 93 people were hospitalized in New Mexico for COVID-19.

According to the NMDOH vaccine dashboard Friday afternoon, 57.6% of New Mexicans age 16 or older have completed a vaccine series and 66.8% have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

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.
