    “With a partial re-opening of El Paso underway, it’s very tempting for residents of Las Cruces and Dona Ana County to cross the state line to visit restaurants, stores and other attractions over the long weekend,” said Mayor Ken Miyagishima. “But the commercial activity underway in El Paso doesn’t mean the coronavirus threat has gone away.”

  •           The Joint Information Center (JIC) is advising Doña Ana County residents to stay vigilant and observe COVID-19 safety precautions over the Memorial Day holiday.  

    The Memorial Day weekend is traditionally reserved for family gatherings and travel, but with area parks and recreation sites still closed due to the pandemic, the JIC is discouraging residents from gathering in large groups or unnecessary travel.
