Santa Fe County's virus totals, while still modest, have risen over the past two days. 

The state said the Santa Fe area had 20 new COVID-19 cases in its Wednesday report. The day before, there were 14 and in a three-day period over the weekend — the Department of Health no longer provides information on Saturdays and Sundays — there were 26.

Overall, the state had 187 new cases and 10 additional deaths.

The fatalities in Wednesday's list ranged in ages from their 30s to their 80s. Seven were from Bernalillo County and three from Doña Ana County.

 New Mexico has seen 4,020 deaths and 195,783 positive cases.

There also was a slight rise in hospitalizations in Wednesday's report from 121 to 124.

It seems the public has become over confident because people have been getting vaccinated. Now is not the time to let our guard down, Masks, staying home more than not, and spacing are still all very important. And why is the state not reporting numbers for the weekend days anymore?? This is not over. . . . .
