Department of Health to phase out daily COVID-19 Epidemiology Report

SANTA FE – Beginning May 11, in conjunction with the end of the national Public Health Emergency, the New Mexico Department of Health will discontinue its daily reporting of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, deaths, and tests. NMDOH will continue to monitor the week-by-week trends in COVID-19 infections, COVID-19 related hospitalizations and COVID-19 related deaths.  

“The end of the national Public Health Emergency on May 11, signals a shift to a new phase of COVID-19” said DOH Deputy Secretary Dr. Laura Parajon. "We will continue to actively monitor trends related to COVID-19, to report data that can be used to protect ourselves and our communities.” 

People at highest risk for severe COVID-19 are people over the age of 65 and individuals who are immunocompromised. We now have more tools and resources than ever before to prevent and treat COVID.  

  • Stay up to date on flu and COVID-19 vaccinations. 
  • Get tested if you have symptoms of COVID.  
  • If you do get COVID, get treated if you are at high risk for severe COVID.  
  • Stay home if you or your child is sick. 
  • Wash hands thoroughly and frequently. 
  • Keep common, high touch surface areas clean and regularly disinfected.
