Information for New Mexico Workers Affected by COVID-19 from the NM Dept. of Workforce Solutions

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has declared a state of public health emergency in New Mexico as a result of the novel coronavirus disease (also known as COVID-19). All New Mexicans should follow best practices to minimize the risk of community exposure. Precautionary steps recommended by the Governor and the New Mexico Department of Health include:
      • Avoid large public gatherings
      • Avoid all non-essential travel to affected out-of-state areas
      • Remain home ("self-isolate") if you are sick
      • Take precautionary steps to protect your individual health:
        • Washing your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
        • Clean “high-touch” surfaces daily with regular household cleaners
        • Avoid sharing personal household items
      • Don't panic, but be prepared

In light of the Governor's declaration, certain workers may be eligible for Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits. You may be eligible if the situations described below apply to you:
      • Employers may lay off some or all of their workforce as a result of the impact of COVID-19; for example, a restaurant that sees a significant reduction in business due to lack of customers dining out during this time, or an event facility that cancels all events until a later date, or bus drivers who are out of work due to temporary school closures.
      • Workers who are self-quarantined or directed to be quarantined, or who have immediate family who is quarantined.
      • Workers who have their hours reduced as a result of COVID-19.
For more information, please review the COVID-19 UI Fact Sheet below and the FAQs on this page.

Santa Fe Public Schools to Provide Free Meals to Children at “Drive-up” Distribution Points Beginning Monday, March 16th

Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Veronica C. Garcia, announced the following:
“Because the Santa Fe Public Schools had a planned spring break beginning March 16th
-20th , we didn’t have any food on hand to feed our students this week. Due to the swift
action of Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, Secretary of Education Ryan Stewart and Major
General Kenneth A. Nava head of the National Guard we are pleased to announce that we
will be distributing breakfast and lunch “grab and go” bags tomorrow. Any child, age 18
and under, can receive a free meal during the following times:

● Breakfast: 7:30 AM – 8:30 AM
● Lunch: 11:45 AM – 12:45 PM

Santa Fe Public Schools will distribute free meals to any child, age 18 and under, at
“drive-up” distribution points at the following locations:

● Aspen Community School
● Capital High School
● Chaparral Elementary School
● Kearney Elementary School
● Ramirez Thomas Elementary School
● Santa Fe High School
● Sweeney Elementary School

“As families arrive to these locations, they are to remain in their vehicle, and one meal will
be provided to each child. A child must be present to receive a meal.

“SFPS will continue to provide meals at these times and locations on weekdays throughout
spring break and continuing on through the state-mandated closure of schools.

“I am grateful that the Governor and her team supported our District’s students and I
commend Deputy Superintendent Kristy Wagner and her General Services team who
swiftly jumped into action all day Sunday to ensure that we would be ready to serve our
students on Monday morning.”
