Once again, new Covid cases in New Mexico are declining, now consistently under 500 a day from a peak of over 3000. Tighter restrictions ordered by our Governor and state Department of Health have helped reduce new cases, but most importantly, the cooperation of our fellow citizens. Please wear your mask, minimize travel and shopping, maintain distancing, and sanitize after touching ANYTHING; door handles, shopping carts, self-checkouts, keypads, pens, etc. Allow extra distance between you and unmasked or improperly masked people. Continue to mask and take the other recommended precautions after you have been vaccinated.
Click here for information on the New Mexico "Red to Green" county-by-county opening plan. (Scroll about halfway down the page for individual county status.) As of February 24, most counties, including Grant, have been upgraded to yellow status or better. Remember that yellow still means "high risk", so please continue to mask, distance, and sanitize! The next update will be March 10.

Something to think about:
Yes, Danes pay high taxes, averaging about 45%, but in return they get:
Tuition through college. College students get an expense subsidy of about $900 a month.
Free and equal healthcare for all.
70% child care subsidy.
Pension and elderly care.
And their quality of life and happiness level are among the highest in the world.
