The New Mexico Department of Health (DOH) reported a man in his 60s was Eddy County’s 144th COVID-19 death Tuesday.

The man was hospitalized at the time of his death, which was the first in Eddy County in nearly three weeks.

New positive COVID-19 cases in Eddy County stood at 96 Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, per DOH data. The Carlsbad area 88220 zip code topped New Mexico’s top-10 zip codes with the most COVID-19 cases at 69.

Signs at the Eddy County Public Health Office in Artesia indicate dates and times for COVID-19 vaccines and testing.

Tuesday’s new cases in Eddy County dropped to 54 and the 88220 zip code ranked second in New Mexico zip codes with 41, a DOH news release indicated.

Eddy County Emergency Manager Jennifer Armendariz said increased tests and vaccinations were part of a new strategy set by DOH.

“They are going to increase their testing and vaccination days to two days a week rather than one day a week,” she said. “Previously they were doing one day a week because of staffing.”
