NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – A statewide health alert is in effect Thursday night because of smoke across the state. Health officials say that smoke makes everyone more vulnerable to the coronavirus. The symptoms of smoke exposure and COVID 19 are so similar and experts say so it’s important to take precautions to avoid both.

New Mexicans woke up to a hazy sky Thursday morning, “This is that time of year where we start being concerned about smoke coming in,” says Deputy Director of City of Albuquerque Environmental Department, Mark DiMenna.
