New Mexico: The Official Stance for Construction
Construction Status: Essential
On March 24, 2020, a statewide order for the shutdown of all non-essential business was issued. The order was further extended to April 30, 2020, and then to May 4, 2020, under the revised executive orders listing construction as an essential business.
With continuous warnings on rising cases and chances of transmission, New Mexico is re-enacting all public restrictions. Governor Grisham has announced on July 15, 2020, an extension to the state of emergency keeping a hold to Phase 2 of reopening in the state.

October 2020 Update: Department of Public Health and Governor Grisham have extended the public health emergency until October 16, 2020. However, the state has removed certain restrictions which may make it easier for construction firms to operate and carry the projects forward.
