SANTA FE (BNM) - New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced Tuesday, Oct. 13, anticipated amendments to the Public Health Order, including curfews on restaurants and bars and a reduction in mass gatherings.

According to the governor’s press secretary, Nora Sackett, the anticipated amendments should not affect occupancy limits at houses of worship. “Nothing has changed in regards to occupancy limits at houses of worship,” Sackett told the Baptist New Mexican on Wednesday, Oct. 14.

The current limit for churches and other houses of worship is 40% of a space’s occupancy limit.
