SANTA FE (KSMX)- The New Mexico Department of Transportation is advising people to shop alone to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
“Leave family members at home where they are safe, Secretary Mike Sandoval said. “Please shop alone. Every time you leave your house you put your family and community at risk”.
The department also advises New Mexicans follow COVID-19 precautions while shopping.
- Stay at least 6 feet away from those around you.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or tissue.
- If possible, wipe down your shopping cart and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds before and after unloading your groceries.
As part of New Mexicos response to limit the spread of COVID-19, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham issued a public health order to stay home and self-isolate except for outings absolutely necessary for health, safety and welfare.
