[ARCHIVED] City Continues to Minimize Potential Spread of Illness

The City of Las Cruces is committed to the safety of its residents as presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 arise within the State of New Mexico. While there have been no reported cases of the virus within the City of Las Cruces, staff under direction of Public Works Building Services have been diligent in sanitizing “high-touch” surfaces within City Hall such as door handles, elevator buttons, water fountains, counter tops and handrails.

In addition, sanitizing stations have been increased in City Hall and certain doors have been propped open during business hours to reduce the need to touch door handles.

Staff have also been asked to limit person to person contact if possible, to wash their hands often especially if they have been in public areas, or after blowing their nose, coughing, or sneezing. They are also encouraged to use hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes in their work areas, avoid touching their faces, and to stay home if they feel sick and to get medical care if needed to help prevent any illnesses from passing to other employees or customers.

Residents looking for information on the City’s response to COVID-19 related closures, postponements and updates can visit the City’s website An Alert Center notification is available at the top of the page. Those interested in being notified when new posts are made in the Alert Center can subscribe to the “Notify Me” sign up page.
