TODAY: Governor, state officials to give public COVID-19 update
SANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham will be joined by state officials at 3 PM today, Monday, to give a public update on the state’s response to the COVID-19 public health emergency and to make an announcement regarding a statewide stay-at-home instruction.
The address will be broadcast live on Facebook at facebook.com/GovMLG. The Legislative Council Service will livestream the update on its website, nmlegis.gov, under the “Webcast” tab.
Due to the need for social isolation and the imperative to avoid gatherings and face-to-face contact to the greatest extent possible, state officials last week strongly encouraged state media associations to arrange for a pool-style rotation of reporters who will attend the update and share information among outlets. The need to disseminate information is as great as the need to keep our distance; cooperation between outlets is greatly, greatly appreciated.
News outlets are permitted one credentialed reporter each inside the Capitol. Camera personnel will be limited to one per outlet as well. Again, media outlets are strongly encouraged to cooperate and share resources in order to minimize physical attendance.
