Because most of the animals had been purchased long before anyone had ever heard of a coronavirus named SARS-CoV-2 or the disease it causes, which was named COVID-19 by the World Health Organization, the governor said that livestock shows could go on.

Secretary of Health and Human Services, Dr. David Scrase, and state epidemiologist Dr. Chad Smelser addressed members of the media Tuesday and gave an update on what the state's medical professionals know as of the 196th day of life during COVID-19.

Scrase opened with information in the media, including the Scientific American article on how Mew Mexico controlled the spread of COVID-19. The article highlighted New Mexico's testing strategy, comparing the state to our neighbors in Arizona and Texas. New Mexico was also the subject of a New York Times article about a nursing home devoted to treating those with COVID-19.

Nursing home visitation guidelines have now been updated at the federal level. Updates include guidance for assessing when indoor visitation can occur. Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham said in a previous press conference that focusing on improving visitations directly impacts the mental and emotional health of residents.
