    Default All roads into Gallup, New Mexico, are closed over "uninhibited" COVID-19 spread

    MAY 2, 2020


    New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham invoked the state's Riot Control Act on Friday to essentially lock down the city of Gallup after its mayor requested that she do so on Thursday. Under the act, all roads leading into Gallup are now closed off "to mitigate the uninhibited spread of COVID-19 in that city."
    "Effective at 12 p.m., May 1, all roads into Gallup are closed. Businesses in the city of Gallup will close from 5 p.m. through 8 a.m. Vehicles may only have a maximum of two individuals. Residents of the city should remain at home except for emergency outings and those essential for health, safety and welfare," Grisham's office said in a
    press release

    Gallup, McKinley County, NM, is a motel, truck stop lay-over town, and BNSF Railroad hub on I40 near the AZ state line with a lot of out-of-state travelers that are alleged to be causing and spreading Covid19 health issues there, disproportionately far greater than all other towns and counties in NM. The Gallup area is also known to be home to many Native Americans such as the Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, etc. where poverty and poor health in general, can already be an aggravating problem.

    Thanks, Grulla, that explains it. No wonder they want traffic minimized!
