Santa Fe COVID-19 Updates & Resources


**Mask Update: On August 20, 2021, the State of New Mexico re-implemented a statewide requirement that facemasks be worn in all public indoor spaces, with only limited exceptions, and regardless of vaccination status.**
 
**All businesses, large events, and organizations across the state may once again operate at 100% of maximum capacity.**
 
**There have been no state travel restrictions or requirements since mid-February.**


The safety and well-being of our residents and visitors has always been Santa Fe’s top priority. Now, more than ever, we are dedicated to helping you feel confident to travel safely. The City of Santa Fe continues to work closely with our business partners, monitoring the new safety procedures and practices being implemented within restaurants, accommodations, attractions, venues and more, to ensure you can feel comfortable during your visit to our welcoming city.

Effective August 20, 2021, the State of New Mexico will temporarily re-implement a statewide requirement that facemasks be worn in all public indoor spaces, with only limited exceptions, and regardless of vaccination status, to stem the state’s rising tide of COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations. The re-implemented mask requirement applies to all individuals aged 2 and older in all indoor public settings – except when eating or drinking. This will remain in effect until at least October 15. 

Businesses, houses of worship and other entities may enact stricter requirements at their discretion.

Previously, the state had only recommended that individuals who have been vaccinated resume wearing facemasks in indoor spaces. Unvaccinated individuals have been and remain required to wear facemasks in indoor public settings.
