New Mexico governor shuts down grocery stores for two weeks

A dozen gro­cery stores around the state have been forced to close for two weeks because of a pub­lic health order issued by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham at a time when the state’s res­i­dents are suf­fer­ing from record high unem­ploy­ment and food inse­cu­ri­ty, crit­ics say.

The order requires busi­ness­es with four or more rapid respons­es of COVID-19 cas­es report­ed with­in in a 14-day peri­od to close for two weeks.

More than 25 essen­tial busi­ness­es were shut down as of Mon­day after­noon, includ­ing a num­ber of gro­cery stores and major retailers.
