ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Colorado businesses are ready to welcome New Mexico customers.

The governor announced on Thursday that New Mexicans will no longer need to quarantine after traveling to certain states, including Colorado.


The owner of Sticks and Stones Handmade in Durango welcomes is reliant on tourism, and welcomes all visitors. 

"Tourism is a huge part of our business here, especially through the summer time and that's been a challenge for everybody," Micki Hassemer said. "I think Durango has done a pretty good job of really putting the word out of mask are necessary, all the places in town, have hand sanitizer. I haven't had any issues with people not wearing mask when they come in."

A family who spoke to KOB 4 said they will travel to other states as long as it's safe to do so.
