MLG calls karaoke and bingo ‘high-risk activities’ during COVID-19 news conference

On Tuesday, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced more COVID-19 restrictions during her weekly news conference, including required spot-testing workers for restaurants, keeping a three-week log of all customers for contact tracing, a curfew by 10:00 p.m. daily, and a mandated online certification by October 30.

Previously, during her September 24 COVID-19 update, Lujan Grisham raised eyebrows when she said that “cornhole tournaments” are a “high-risk” activity. She doubled down on her latest presser, this time adding in bingo and karaoke as “high-risk.”

Gov. Lujan Grisham says “cornhole tournaments” are a “super spreader” activity that causes COVID-19 spread during her September 24 news conference.

“We got a report in a community about karaoke and bingo. These are high-risk activities that have created spread,” said Lujan Grisham. She added, “COVID will never be over. The virus will always live among us.”

The newest restrictions are the beginning of a backward jump on opening up the state. She has repeatedly claimed to care about New Mexico’s economy, however, her actions to clamp down on citizens’ everyday activities shows she is willing to hurt businesses in order to fulfill her agenda. 

Big box stores like Walmart and Costco are still allowed to operate with few restrictions, while restaurants and houses of worship have strict mandates.
