TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – The Taos Mayor has decided to implement a town curfew to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Taos officials point out that while the town is a rural community, much of its population includes seniors, retirees, and those that are high-risk.
The mayor said the new curfew will encourage all non-essential personnel to stay home between the hours of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Businesses the governor’s office deemed essential, will operate as usual. Those allowed to go to and from work include healthcare workers, grocery store workers, government and utility workers.
