May 22, 2020 – Gene Grant and The Line opinion panel discuss the state’s reaction to the governor’s COVID-19 response updates, which went into effect May 16 and included opening more retail businesses but not opening restaurants to dine-in service. That new public health order also requires, with few exceptions, wearing face masks in public – a mandate that is not sitting well with everyone.  Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham also said in a news conference this week that the state is on track for further reopenings, which would include in-store dining, starting June 1.
