SANTA FE, N.M.- Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced the state will not be entering phase 2 right away. The governor said she wants to see more data over the next few days and weeks.
The governor said several things will not change right now:
The governor's decision came as the spread rate rose in four of the five regions in New Mexico.
The governor also pointed to rising cases in neighboring states. She said New Mexico is in a better position than Arizona and Texas due to early mitigation steps, including the use of masks.
