County follows suit with indoor mask mandate removal


The New Mexico indoor mask mandate was lifted by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Feb. 17. Members of the public are no longer required to wear a mask or face covering inside of most Doña Ana County buildings.

Masks are still required to be worn anywhere in the secure portions of the facility at the Doña Ana County Adult and Juvenile Detention Centers.  These areas include administration, reception, break rooms, attorney visitation, and detainee intake and housing areas.  Masks are not required in the public lobby and the Detention Center training area located in the Annex building.  This is in accordance with the current CDC guidance for Detention Facilities, as updated Feb. 10.

The County administration will continue to closely monitor news regarding new variants and changes in public health recommendations and will communicate any updates to the public promptly.
