PORTALES, N.M. – Roosevelt County has continued to see a drastic decrease of COVID-19 cases within the County, with the data reflecting an 8.46 percent test positivity rate over the most recent two week period. In light of these improved numbers, County Offices will open to the public for in-person services effective Monday, Feb. 1, 2021. County personnel will provide services to the public in person, and will continue to offer service electronically, by phone or by appointment as needed by our residents.
“The Treasurer’s Office understands the frustration that “closed to the public” has put on our residents as does all our County offices,” noted County Treasurer Layle Sanchez. “The County is eager to reopen so we can better serve our friends and neighbors.”
Roosevelt County lobbies will re-open to the public Feb. 1, 2021 during regular business hours and will be following the required NM Department of Health COVID Safe Practices. The safety and security of our employees and the public will continue to be our primary focus. Roosevelt County is following the State PHO and relying on the Center for Disease Control, New Mexico Department of Health, and the World Health Organization for the latest COVID-19 data.
