Department of Health Logo

The New Mexico Department of Health will provide drive up screening for the COVID-19 virus on Friday, July 3rd at the Health’s Las Cruces Public Health Office, 1170 N. Solano Drive from 7 - 10 a.m.

Residents are strongly encouraged to schedule an appointment by calling 575-528-5063. Staff can accept those without an appointment - but only while supplies last. 

Testing is available to New Mexico residents regardless if they have COVID-19 symptoms or not. Residents, however, should particularly consider being tested if they have any combination of the following symptoms: cough, fever, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and/or loss of taste or smell.

All testing is still FREE OF CHARGE to anyone getting the test, and anyone can get tested, whether they have insurance or not. 

For more information about the testing event, contact the Portales Public Health Office at 575-356-4453. 

In addition, New Mexicans can continue to call with health-related questions to the Department of Health’s coronavirus hotline at 855-600-3453. For non-health-related questions or concerns call 833-551-0518 or visit newmexico.gov
