CO, NM first week of June: Restrictions?
Don't know what it's like in practice. Any insight would be helpful.

CO: "Guideline" is to discourage tourism. Stay within 10 miles of home.

NM: Seems more restrictive. Hotels and restaurants limited to 25% capacity, mask at all times, etc.

I’m headed to Summit County Colorado soon. Restrictions look tight...I’ll be taking food with me but hoping to get takeout for a few meals. Face covers are mandatory.

I plan on hiking, napping, and drinking some good beer and wine. Social distancing ain’t gonna bother me.

We're headed to Red River, NM on June 6th. Staying in our own condo, but hoping they chill out on the restrictions before then. I do know that Angel Fire's golf course has an extra 5 min, so 15 min total, between tee times. That said, we won't be spending too much time around groups of people, so not overly concerned with the restrictions.

You should he fine. It isn't too bad up here. Most people are tired of it and the restrictions are getting looser. Honestly, I haven't noticed too big of a change except some stares if you know what I mean. When are you heading up? Most state and national parks will be opening the first week of June.

ETA: Polis didn't really go full retard like some governors. Also, almost everywhere is open for take out.

Yeah, you will be in a much better position than this weekend. The flood gates open the first week of June... A lot more stuff will be open.

Ruidoso (southern NM) was packed this weekend, nearly every shop open for business, restaurants still take out only, but that is supposed to change June 1.

Maybe 1/100 people wearing a mask. It felt like a normal holiday weekend, which was damn refreshing.

Ruidoso is basically little Texas though, the attitude in N NM may be more resistant.

Angel Fire and Red River will be more relaxed, Taos and Santa Fe more uptight. Although Santa Fe businesses are antsy to open shite back up ASAP. As I would imagine the small businesses in the ski towns as well.

Good news is by June 1 retail and restaurants will be open, with limits on occupancy. There is a "mandatory" mask order by the governor but most people outside of Albuquerque hate it and it isn't enforced, much.

And most snow is melted from the Sangre de Cristos below 11k ft so there are hundreds of miles of trails to get out on and enjoy.

I can't speak for CO. They are a bit more all in on "stay at home and keep your germs away from us" mentality. You probably want to check specific town/county restrictions where you may be heading.

That is extremely helpful. Thanks!
