ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The New Mexico Restaurant Association says it asked the governor about a timeframe for reopening and she didn’t give them an exact date.

Restaurants are hoping to reopen on Friday for sit-down dining. The governor held a Zoom meeting on Tuesday with the association where about 500 people in the industry tuned in.

The group says she wanted to hear from owners and said she would consider their feedback while figuring out a timeline for reopening.
