The New Mexico History Museum is collecting Quarantine Diaries. We’re hoping to capture history in the making and would like to include accounts from as many New Mexicans as possible. If you, or your patrons, would like to share your experience we would like to add your story to the collection. We're focusing on written diaries as opposed to audio or video. Email email@example.com for more information.
