SANTA FE — Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced Wednesday that all bars, restaurants and breweries will end in-person service until April 10, limiting food service to delivery or take-out only.
Lujan Grisham announced the aggressive action during a press conference alongside confirming five new cases of COVID-19, including a Bernalillo County woman who contracted the disease in New Mexico. The current total is 28.
The Governor also directed shopping malls, movie theaters and gyms to close until April 5.
A manager at Brickyard Pizza across from UNM said they would be cutting some employees' hours while promising to continue delivery and take-out orders.
"Obviously, we're going to have to cut back hours. As far as what's actually going to happen, we have no idea," the manager said.
The manager declined to give her full name.
