‘Essential’ Businesses Are No Longer Safe Under State’s New Lockdown, Now Even Grocery Stores Can Be Forced To Close

Grocery stores in New Mexico can now be closed along with every other type of business under a strict state edict that says any business must shut down for two weeks if there are repeated instances in which employees test positive for the coronavirus.The list of forced closures contained five Walmarts and four stores in the Albertsons chain of grocery stores. As of Sunday, most had been allowed to reopen.On Nov. 13, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and state health officials issued an emergency health order to be in effect through Monday in which “New Mexicans are instructed to stay at home except for only those trips that are essential to health, safety and welfare – such as for food and water, emergency medical care, to obtain a flu shot or to obtain a test for COVID-19.”
