CHANCELLOR'S WEEKLY BRIEF: FALL & SPRING ITINERARIES.
November 12, 2020 - One month from today, we will finish out this hybrid fall semester while approaching the end of this eventful and difficult year. Even with the recent good news of a potential and effective vaccine—and new therapeutics recently approved—this COVID-19 pandemic has reached a new level of emergency throughout New Mexico and beyond. Here in McKinley County, we are averaging over 37 new cases per day, and our infection rate is at an almost unsustainable 1.23 average; well over the New Mexico gating target of 1.05 or less. Yesterday, there were 1,500 new cases reported statewide, and our hospitals are filling up quickly with new patients.
