NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – Many people are asking where are you most likely to contract COVID-19? While the state can’t know for sure, there does seem to be a common denominator among those who test positive; Shopping.
The latest map released by the state runs through November 16, before the two-week reset. It shows nearly 50% of those who tested positive and answered contact tracing questions went shopping. That’s the yellow line. That included anywhere from a big box store to a grocery store to the mall.
About 15% say they dined at a restaurant or brewery, that’s a green line. About 8% said they attended church, that’s an orange line. The black line represents gatherings and the pink line represents traveling outside the state, those both sit at 5%. The blue represents the gym and that’s about 3%. Keep in mind, this is an honor system and people may not be completely honest about where they’ve been and not everyone willingly takes part in contact tracing.
