ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Multiple New Mexico counties improved in the state's Red to Green Framework for safe reopening during the coronavirus pandemic.

Four counties, Harding, Union, Sierra and Catron, are in the new Turquoise level. It's the least restrictive reopening category in New Mexico.

Six counties are in Green:

  • Los Alamos 
  • De Baca
  • Taos
  • Torrance
  • Mora
  • Quay

The remainder of the counties are in Yellow or Red. Dona Ana County was the only county to move backwards in the state's reopening guidance. It went from Yellow to Red due to its increasing COVID-19 test positivity rate.
