Hospitalizations were little changed Monday, with 42 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in Clark County, down from 43 on Friday, and two people hospitalized awaiting test results, the same as on Friday, according to Public Health data.
The Taoisaech says the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines is continuing "very effectively and efficiently".
Counties with the largest numbers of new cases were: Bernalillo County, 51; San Juan County, 44; Santa Fe County, 14; and Valencia County, 13.

Approximately 74 per cent of adults in B.C. have now received a first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, while 72 per cent of people aged 12 and older have been vaccinated.
By keeping our positive momentum going, we can all start to shift our focus to the many things we have to gain through immunization.
"We are on a good path to get back to work, to university, to seeing friends and travelling, resuming all of those connections that are so important to all of us".
Let's look forward to the brighter days ahead and let's continue to do our part to help all of us get there.
