On this week’s discussion show, Paul and Wally discuss the rapid-changing COVID rules being imposed by the Lujan Grisham Administration.

That’s a fine idea, but why wait until now when the Gov. could have made this move back in January when the vaccine came out? During this conversation, Paul and Wally receive news that schools will be reopening to all K-12 students full-time.

New Mexico’s bowling alleys are still closed but MLG is letting Meow Wolf reopen on the 19th.

NM food insecurity among children on the rise during COVID.

Even after recent reopening measures, NM remains among the most locked down states in the nation according to Wallethub.

States begin to reopen Governor Abbott Lifts Mask Mandate, Opens Texas 100 Percent. Mississippi reopens as well and even Connecticut which announced it is lifting ALL capacity limits on restaurants, retail, libraries, personal services, indoor recreation, gyms, museums, offices & houses of worship.

Notably, 12 of 15 states w/o mask mandates (including Texas) outperformed New Mexico on COVID deaths.
