Effective April 30, the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) has updated the statewide COVID-19 map, with updated key health metrics used to assign risk levels to counties under the state’s red-yellow-green COVID-19 framework it began in December.
New Mexico continues to lead the nation in per capita vaccine distribution.
As of April 30, 24 New Mexico counties are at the turquoise level (the highest level of the red-yellow-green framework) and six are at the Green Level. Both levels have fewer restrictions on commercial and day-to-day activities amid decreased virus risk. 30 of 33 New Mexico counties are at the least restrictive levels.

Total cases: 197,733; total tests: 3,274,367; current hospitalizations: 145; deaths: 4,067; recovered: 178,593
