Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Resource Center

Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) is a public health emergency that poses serious health and economic threats to our nation. I am fighting to ensure that those on the front lines of this COVID-19 pandemic have the tools they need to protect themselves, their families, and their communities, and hold the Trump administration accountable to do more to address this public health crisis. Please continue to follow guidance from state and federal public health officials to keep yourself, your family, and our communities safe.

In response to COVID-19, the federal government is now offering several resources to support New Mexicans. The following information is designed to help you access those resources.
