AZTEC — San Juan County and the City of Farmington announced that they will be closing many facilities starting on Nov. 16, in compliance with the public health order issued Nov. 13.

The public health order reinstated a shelter-in-place directive that closes non-essential businesses and limits the number of people who can be in essential businesses. The new order lasts through Nov. 30.

Shortly after the governor announced the new public health order, the county and Farmington released a list of facilities that will close. These facilities include:

  • Farmington Public Library
  • Farmington Museum
  • Farmington Recreation Center
  • All tennis courts
  • Golf courses
  • Farmington Aquatic Center
  • Lions Pool
  • McGee Park

Essential county services will remain open and many departments are offering services over the phone or online. The county encourages anyone with questions to call 505-334-9481 between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.  Online services can be found at

People who need to pay property tax can do so online at or by using the drop box that is located on the east end of the San Juan County Administration Building at 100 S. Oliver Drive in Aztec.

The Farmington Regional Animal Shelter is open by appointment only and drive-through meals will continue at the Bonnie Dallas Senior Center and the Farmington Indian Center.
