New Mexico Megachurch Fined $2,500 after Staff Did Not Wear Masks during Christmas Eve Service

A New Mexico megachurch has been fined $2,500 after staff members did not wear masks during a Christmas Eve service last December.

The New Mexico Department of Health Office of General Counsel had initially fined Calvary Church, a non-denominational church in Albuquerque, $10,000 for allegedly violating mask mandates and capacity restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Last month, however, the fine was reduced to $2,500.

In a statement on June 10, Secretary of Health Tracie C. Collins ordered an additional “civil monetary penalty of $2,500” on Calvary Church “on the basis that church staff members did not wear masks during the Christmas Eve service in violation of the Public Health Order.”
