ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- New Mexico State Police will be working to make sure people and businesses are complying with the governor's stay-at-home order.
The order requires all non-essential businesses to close, and limits gatherings to no more than five people.
Those who do not comply to the order will be given a warning. However, if they continue to defy the order, they could face civil fines or criminal charges.
People can report a business or a group in violation of the order by emailing NMSP.COVID19@state.nm.us. When submitting a non-compliance complaint via email, New Mexico State Police asks for people to provide the following: date and time of observed violation, city, county, business name and business address.
People can also submit a complaint by contacting the non-emergency COVID-19 hotline at (833) 551-0518, and pressing option 2. Local police stations and sheriff's offices will also be taking reports on their non-emergency lines.
