I was planning a trip to New Mexico for a conference. This notice was on the airline’s website:
NOTICE FOR ALL TRAVELERS: Effective September 4, any individual traveling to New Mexico from states deemed high-risk based on COVID-positivity rates will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days from the date of their entry into New Mexico or for the duration of their stay in the state, whichever is shorter. In addition, persons who are employed or contracted by an essential business traveling into the state to conduct business activities…do not have to quarantine for 14 days or for the duration of their time in the state.
I had to read this multiple times. So, quarantine for 14 days if you’re on vacation, but don’t quarantine if you’re on business, because, everyone knows, vacationers spread the virus, but business people don’t.
My prayer is that people will see through this nonsense.
