The governor said the state will use the emergency alert system because it allows them to disseminate important information widely and quickly.

New Mexicans who are showing symptoms of COVID-19, including fever, cough, or shortness of breath, should call their health care provider or call the NMDOH hotline at 855-600-3453.
