In recent weeks, COVID-19 has spread rapidly throughout all regions of New Mexico, including an increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations.

In order to stem this alarming rise of COVID-19 statewide, renewed public health regulations will go into effect beginning Friday, October 16.

Without a vaccine, we have only a few tools against this awful, invisible enemy. We must wear our masks. We must avoid large groups of people. We must limit our travel outside of the home, particularly our time in enclosed indoor spaces.

When we do these things, we can crush the virus, and we protect our families, our communities and our state from being overrun by illness. But the virus is booming in New Mexico right now, leaving us with no other option than to restrict opportunities for COVID-19 to spread.

Effective October 16:

- Any food or drink establishment in New Mexico serving alcohol must close at 10:00 p.m. each night, as advised by the Economic Recovery Council. This requirement will be rigorously enforced by the state.

- Maximum occupancy restrictions will be reduced to 60 percent for places of lodging that have completed the N.M. Safe Certified training program and to 25 percent for places of lodging that have not completed the training program.

- All individuals arriving from higher-risk states must self-quarantine for a period of no less than 14 days or for the duration of their stay in New Mexico, whichever is shorter, removing the exemption for a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours.

- Mass gatherings of more than 5 individuals are once again prohibited, defined as any public or private gathering, organized event, ceremony, parade, organized amateur contact sport or grouping that brings together individuals in an indoor OR outdoor space.

I once again urge, with my whole heart, that New Mexicans in every corner of the state, city leaders, county leaders, business leaders, community leaders all take up the mantle of fighting this invisible enemy, of requiring and encouraging safe behavior.

No one, least of all me, wants to get to the point of necessitating additional rollbacks.

The crisis is not over. The virus is still with us. Let’s step it up, all together, once again.

Coming into Questa (photo by Dan Kuehn)

Questa NM is renowned for the beautiful scenery surrounding our small, historic village. This is where you will find the rare trails into the Rio Grande Gorge, trout fishing for every skill level, and mountain lakes with trails that access the highest reaches of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains overlooking the area.

Sitting at 7,500 ft., Questa is the gateway to the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, and the northern gateway to the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway that surrounds the highest peak in New Mexico.

Our village stands in contrast to the resort towns on the east side of the mountains. A half-hour north of Taos, we are one in a long string of small, historic towns that scattered up the Rio Grande from what is now Mexico into southern Colorado in the 18th and 19th centuries. Questa was officially founded in 1842.

A rough and remote location, it was vulnerable to raids by Ute natives for generations. The Spanish Frontier heritage is still palpable. We remain a remote destination, though we do have a small airstrip, and are only a scenic half-hour’s drive north of Taos.

Taos is the place to be for fine dining and Native culture, and Red River, twenty minutes to our east, is busy with family-oriented amusements. But Questa is the getaway for full immersion into the natural beauty of New Mexico! Even on Memorial Day, when the Enchanted Circle fills with bikers, we offer the solemnity of our thousand-flag healing field beneath a silhouette of snow-capped mountains. It is not only our land, but also our culture that makes Questa unique.

Our thick-walled adobe church has stood at the center of our community since the mid-1800s and gave the village its original name of San Antonio del Rio Colorado. “Questa” was an Anglo attempt at simplification but became an official misspelling of the Spanish “cuesta,” referring to the “inclines” on the south of town and the ridge where the old church plaza stands.
