New Mexico Adds 3 States to “Quarantine” List

September 24, 2020

SANTA FE, N.M. — New Mexico has added three more states to its list of what it considers places with a high coronavirus risk.

The designation requires travelers arriving in or returning to New Mexico from the 39 states now on the list to quarantine for 14 days. However, people who can show documentation of a valid negative coronavirus test taken within 72 hours before or after entry into New Mexico are exempt from the quarantine requirement.

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham added Colorado, Oregon and Rhode Island to the list Wednesday. New Mexico officials say the designation is based on coronavirus positivity rates and per capita infections.


BEIJING (AP) — Genetic material collected at a Chinese market near where the first human cases of COVID-19 were identified show raccoon dog DNA comingled with the virus, adding evidence to the theory that the virus originated from animals, not from a lab, international experts say.
