Udall Provides Update on Operating Status of New Mexico Offices

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Tom Udall (D-N.M.) provided an update on the operating status of his New Mexico offices. In accordance with the guidance of public health officials, Udall’s New Mexico offices are under telework procedures, with staffers working remotely. Yesterday, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham issued a stay-at-home order for the state of New Mexico. Udall previously announced that staffers in his Washington, D.C. office are working remotely under office telework procedures until further notice.

Udall’s office will closely monitor developments in Washington D.C. and New Mexico and consult with the Office of the Attending Physician and other officials to determine a schedule for returning to normal operating status. His office will continue to serve New Mexico constituents with minimal disruption, and will continue to be available by phone, mail, and email. Senator Udall himself is in Washington working on public health and economic relief legislation in the Senate to help New Mexico and the nation at this challenging time.

“I want New Mexicans to know that my staff and I are working tirelessly to make sure our state and New Mexico families have the resources they need to stay healthy and to weather this difficult period,” Udall said. “I encourage New Mexicans to continue to follow the guidance of the governor and state health officials to keep their families and communities healthy.”
