BLM New Mexico COVID-19 Information Update

Practice Social Distancing Outdoors Infographic

Visitors may continue to enjoy BLM trails and open space areas. The health and safety of staff and visitors in these facilities is our number one priority. We continue to remind our visitors to follow the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s CDC’s guidance to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, including maintaining social distancing, covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and staying home if you feel sick. Visitors are encouraged to “pack it in and pack it out” as future trash pickup may be limited due to limited staff availability in some areas. Please expect to pay fees at any site that is open and typically collects fees.

Public Rooms and Visitor Centers

Continuing our service to the public while doing our part to address COVID-19 is very important. Following guidance from the CDC and recommendations from state and local public health authorities, some BLM offices are temporarily restricting in-person access to public rooms or offering limited services by appointment only.

Before you visit your local BLM office, please call that office to confirm services and availability of staff.  If you call your local BLM office, and are unable to reach the person you are looking for, you can also call the BLM New Mexico State Office at 505-954-2222 for assistance.
