Note: Any staff or student who is fully vaccinated does NOT have to quarantine should they be in close contact with someone who is positive for Covid-19. The NM PED has updated (May 13) a close contact as someone who:

  • Has an exposure of fifteen minutes or longer within six feet during a 24-hour period of a confirmed Covid-19 case with or without a face covering.

Being located in the same building or school is NOT being in close contact with a Covid-19 confirmed case.
