HIGHLIGHT: NEW MEXICO
Albuquerque: Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s revamped public health order took effect Monday, and some restaurant owners aren’t happy they’ve been ordered to roll back indoor dining. The owners say they have gone to great lengths to make their establishments safe, and the governor has offered no evidence New Mexico’s uptick in cases has anything to do with restaurant service. The New Mexico Restaurant Association has helped organize an online petition. Restaurants across the state protested the Democratic governor’s prohibition of dine-in service by having staff hold up signs with the number of employees being affected.
Workers gather outside Route 66 Diner in Albuquerque, N.M., on Monday.
