ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The New Mexico Department of Transportation is discouraging people from shopping in groups to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

“This is not a time for a social outing. Leave family members at home where they are safe,” Secretary Mike Sandoval said.


The department provided the following tips to stay healthy while shopping:

  • Practice social distancing. Stay at least 6 feet away from those around you.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or tissue. 
  • If possible, wipe down your shopping cart and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds before and after unloading your groceries.
