Highlights from the Week of April 19, 2021
There's a lot going on in the City Different!
The Cure for the COVID Blues
Yes, Santa Fe County is still rocking the Turquoise COVID risk rating. But this week we saw some rough days of high case counts that are cause for concern. In addition to maintaining vigilance about masking and distancing, anyone 16+ can call CHRISTUS to make an appointment for vaccination, no pre-registration required:

Help Win the Water Challenge
It's not too late to help Santa Fe win the Tenth Annual Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, a friendly competition between cities across the country to see which city can be the most water-wise, which runs until April 30. Join the challenge by making a series of simple pledges at mywaterpledge.com to use water more efficiently, reduce pollution, and save energy.
Heroes to the Rescue
On Monday the Mayor introduced the Alternative Response Unit, which will provide appropriate responses to people suffering behavioral or mental health crises. It's a joint effort between the Fire and Police Departments, and Community Services; the unit will be staffed by a paramedic, a police officer, and a case manager, all trained in Crisis Intervention. The unit will hit the streets on May 4, 2021.
Let There Be Lights
The streetlight conversion demonstrations go live tonight!
City and Dalkia staff will be present from 8:00 to 9:30 at Frenchy's Field and on Jaguar Dr. Get more info and submit feedback online at www.santafeled.com.
