In order to combat the spread of COVID-19, the town of Taos has announced it will implement a nightly curfew effective Thursday (April 2).

The curfew will require citizens to remain indoors from the hours of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. in order to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus in Taos.

The town council will convene for a special meeting Friday (April 3) at 6 p.m. to discuss extending the curfew as well as the public health guidelines within the town. Town staff will be livestreaming the meetings so the public can access it remotely.

The curfew requires people to stay off of “public streets, alleys, parks, rights of way, grounds or other public and semipublic places whether on foot, bicycle or in vehicles of any type” during the curfew.

First responders, utility workers, health care professional and home health workers, delivery vehicles and emergency repairs or deliveries of food, water, sewer, electric and medical supplies are exempted from the curfew.
