(January 12, 2021) Albuquerque, NM - On Tuesday, New Mexico United was made aware of the positive COVID-19 test of an individual in the club’s front office. Out of an abundance of caution, United has made the decision to temporarily close the front office/team store for the remainder of the day for a deep cleaning. The building will reopen tomorrow, with continued proper COVID-19 protocols and precautions in place.
New Mexico United, through our partner Medic Buddy Mobile Health, provides employees with weekly COVID-19 testing. Every other individual who participated in Tuesday’s weekly test received a negative result, including those who had come into close contact with the individual who tested positive.
New Mexico United’s online store remains open for purchases.
