To protect our community from the spread of COVID-19, elected officials and Albuquerque businesses have made tough but responsible decisions that affect services to customers and offerings to guests. Many businesses have changed their hours, shifted to carry-out services only, made adjustments to their capacity levels, or closed temporarily. Visit Albuquerque is tracking business and event updates and sharing them with the community as we receive notifications. Watch this page for continually updated information, and help us continue to support our local businesses in any way possible.
