Vaccination Proof Required For Visitors, Not Lawmakers, in New Mexico’s Capitol Building

Vaccination proof will be required for visitors in New Mexico’s Capitol building informally called the Roundhouse, but not lawmakers.

Beginning Dec. 6, there will also be news rules restricting performances, advocacy booths, and tours at the Capitol, The Associated Press reported. The Legislature will be meeting then to set new political boundaries for districts based on data from the 2020 census.

The rules will be enforced in January as well when the regular legislative session begins, but vaccinated individuals would be able to go to legislative hearings, a first since the pandemic started.
