Albuquerque/BernCo Government Center Remains Closed To Public


Update: At the direction of Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, Bernalillo County is instituting partial office work schedules while continuing tele-working for employees whose positions allow and encouraging a stay-at-home posture.

Bernalillo County will allow staffing up to 25% of regular staffing levels in departments but those departments must follow Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s public health orders and encourage public adherence as follows:

  • Vendors and contractors and general public will be required to wear masks while in county facilities. 
  • Meetings will be conducted virtually whenever possible.  When in-person meetings are necessary, social distancing of at least six feet will be observed at all times
  • County employees that are equipped and directed to tele-work or remote-work will continue to do so
  • Employees shall avoid hosting meetings with visitors, including county employees, within their individual workspaces – the use of common areas and meeting spaces will be utilized when possible and all attending shall be wearing facemasks and observing social distancing
  • Departments shall offer hand sanitizer at reception desks and customer service areas

Law enforcement, firefighters and rescue personnel, 911 dispatch, and the Metropolitan Detention Center (no in-person visitation) will continue to work as normal.

Bernalillo County Manager Julie Morgas Baca is asking all residents to adhere to Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s directives and be aware of their surroundings and others near them.  Please stay at least six-feet from others and stay at home except as needed for grocery shopping, medical assistance and exercise.  Limit group contact to five or fewer people.  Wear masks when in public areas.
