New Mexico COVID-19 Red to Green Framework

Public Health Order Updated!

Indoor visits and activities are allowed!

New Mexico's Department of Health continues to monitor and track the COVID-19 pandemic in our state.  The following aims to help everyone better understand the current recommendations and public health orders and how that directly effects our residents, staff and ability to visit.

The NMDOH updated the Public Health Order on July 30th, 2021.  Here is the link to the actual Order.  And here is the link to Frequently Asked Questions about the Public Health Order.

Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing Homes follow these five guidelines:

  1. Face Coverings for all visitors entering the facility.  If a resident and visitor are fully vaccinated, masks may be removed for in-room visits.
  2. Communal and Group activities are allowed for residents who are fully vaccinated.
  3. Quarantine of 14 days for any unvaccinated/partially vaccinated resident following initial admission or following an absence from the home for more than 24 hours.
  4. In-room visitations are allowed for fully vaccinated visitors for residents who are also vaccinated.  Residents who are not fully vaccinated may have visits outside or in the designated visitation areas.  Visitors are still not permitted to dine with residents.
  5. Testing of all unvaccinated staff is weekly.  Unvaccinated residents who leave the facility once a week or more must be tested twice a month.

What is the Red to Green framework?

In order to prevent and mitigate the effects of the spread of the virus, and to ameliorate the unsustainable resultant strain placed upon the state’s health care system and personnel, counties where the virus is more prevalent will operate under more restrictive public health measures. Likewise, counties where the virus has been or is being suppressed will operate under less restrictive measures. Counties will operate under one of three levels: Red, signifying very high risk; Yellow, signifying high risk; and Green, signifying medium risk.

What does this mean for visits, tours and other activities in the BeeHive?

For all homes, we are able to coordinate outdoor visits, closed and open window visits.  Indoor visitations are allowed for family members of residents where both resident and family member are vaccinated.  Compassionate care and end of life visits continued to be allowed.  For future residents, tours are only allowed in homes where staff have been vaccinated at 80% rate.

What does this mean for on-going testing?

We test based on the frequency prescribed in the following table based on the positivity rate reported in the past week.  We monitor each county's positivity rate over other week and adjust the frequency of performing staff testing accordingly.  If any staff member is exposed or is exhibiting symptoms they are tested and not permitted to work until they have a negative test result and are not exhibiting symptoms.Testing Guidelines New Mexico Assisted Living
