Department of Health Logo

Following a successful administration of 10,000 COVID-19 tests throughout southern New Mexico, the state of New Mexico and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services continue their COVID-19 testing partnership efforts to include five locations.

Beginning Saturday, Nov. 21, the Department of Health will establish five new testing sites to continue addressing the surge of COVID-19 cases in New Mexico. 

“Expanding New Mexico’s free testing capacity is critical right now as skyrocketing positivity rates indicate the virus is spreading exponentially in every corner in the state,” said acting Health Secretary Billy Jimenez. “Getting tested is the first step in taking our state from red to green – and saving lives.”

The following new testing sites will be operational beginning Saturday, Nov. 21 for approximately 7 days, with the exception of Thursday, Nov. 26, Thanksgiving Day. Individuals must pre-register for a test at www.doineedacovid19test.com

  • Albuquerque: Alamosa Community Center “Ted M. Gallegos Community Center,” 6900 Gonzales Rd SW, Albuquerque, NM, from 2-6pm
  • Santa Fe: Santa Fe County Fair Grounds, 3229 Rodeo Rd, Santa Fe, NM
  • Las Cruces: New Mexico State University, 3305 Williams Ave. (Parking lot #100), Las Cruces, NM, from 2-6pm
  • Sunland Park: Sunland Park Casino, 1200 Futurity Drive, Sunland Park, NM, from 2-6pm
  • Socorro: Socorro Youth Center, 1002 Ake Ave, Socorro, NM, from 1-5pm

The Department of Health recommends individuals stay home after testing to await their results so as not to inadvertently spread the virus. For information on testing and isolation guidelines visit cv.nmhealth.org.
