If we all work together to follow all the guidelines and protocols, we will have a better chance to continue to play these games”

Here is a breakdown of the percentage of spectators allowed to attend games under the COVID-19 health guidelines from the Governor’s color-coded system of infection rates for counties in New Mexico:

Turquoise Counties:

  • Up to 75% capacity of an outdoor spectator area
  • Up to 33% capacity of an indoor spectator area

Green Counties:

  • Up to 50% capacity of an outdoor spectator area
  • Up to 25% capacity of an indoor spectator area

Yellow Counties:

  • Up to 25% capacity for an outdoor spectator area
  • No spectators for an indoor spectator area

Red Counties:

  • Games go on
  • No spectators allowed

In every case, the host team’s county color governs the spectator capacity.
