Next Reopening Phase Beginning June 1st

RED RIVER, NEW MEXICO - As Red River and the State of New Mexico continue to work through these unusual times, we are trying to keep up with the latest developments from Governor Lujan Grisham. For the next several weeks, we will continue to open up our little slice of heaven according to the current guidelines. New Mexico has reached the safe rate for opening up the state. These are the orders that are in place:

Beginning June 1, 2020 and extending to June 30, 2020 the latest public health order has these modifications:

  • Lodging may operate at 50 % capacity.
  • Restaurants may operate at 50 % dine-in capacity.
    • Gyms, hair salons, barbershops, tattoo parlors, massage services, and nail salons may operate at 25 % capacity on appointment-basis only.
    • Indoor malls may operate at 25 % capacity. No loitering is permitted; food courts remain closed.
    • Drive-in theaters may operate under COVID-safe practices.
      • 14-day quarantine for out-of-state airport arrivals amended to permit certain business travel under COVID-Safe Practices.
      • Additionally, more state parks and outdoor recreation areas will open with COVID-safe practices.
