Department of Health Logo

SANTA FE – The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH)’s reports three COVID-19 screenings will be available over the next three days at the following locations:  

Saturday, March 21st  

Las Cruces Public Health Office parking lot 

1170 N. Solano (corner of Solano and Spruce) 

10am – 2pm (or until supplies last) 

Sunday, March 22nd  

Memorial Medical Center 

2450 S. Telshor Blvd 

9am-1pm (or until supplies last) 

(Enter to enter the parking lot from Terrace Drive for the start of the line.) 

Monday, March 23rd  

Burrell College of Medicine parking lot 

3501 Arrowhead Dr.  

9am – 1pm (or until supplies last)  

Priority testing will be provided for the following:  

  • People experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 infection: fever, cough, or shortness of breath; 

  • People who have traveled from Europe (to include Italy), China, Iran, South Korea, Japan, Seattle, New York City, San Francisco and Portland  

It is critical to know before attending these screenings that those without symptoms of COVID-19 infection do not need testing for COVID-19. We are currently in allergy season, and having allergy symptoms such as sneezing, and itchy eyes, nose or throat is not an indication for testing.  

Please try to limit two people per vehicle to avoid unnecessary risk for viral spread. No insurance is required for screening.  

New Mexicans with health-related questions can call our coronavirus hotline at 855-600-3453.  For non-health-related questions or concerns call 833-551-0518 or visit newmexico.govwhich is being updated and finalized as a one-stop source for information. 

The state Department of Health will update its dedicated COVID-19 webpage with additional tests as the state lab provides results.
