Bernalillo County will rescind its coronavirus (COVID-19) closure instruction and reopen most facilities at full capacity.
However, many county offices will remain closed or have limited face-to-face interactions due to the county’s impending move to its new headquarters at Alvarado Square. Many offices will be relocated over the next month and will not reopen fully until the county’s official opening day at Alvarado Square, Monday, Aug. 16.
