ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —The 79 newly reported COVID cases from the department of health’s Tuesday report indicate that New Mexico is meeting the governor’s target seven-day average of 168 cases or less, but the state still remains in Phase 2. So what’s the hold up?
According to state officials, they said it’s because they have a different way of tabulating the rolling seven-day average. By the state’s count, that average is currently 174, which is above the target goal.
