Due to an unanticipated disruption in COVID-19 testing supplies, we are temporarily discontinuing asymptomatic testing at all Lovelace Health System, University of New Mexico Hospital and Presbyterian locations, including drive-thru testing sites.
All three health systems will now only conduct testing for patients with COVID-19 symptoms.
To ensure timely access to a COVID-19 test for the most vulnerable patients, we encourage community members with no COVID-19 symptoms or known exposure and workers looking for a clearance for their employer to visit the New Mexico Department of Health website for alternative testing locations.
Symptoms meeting the criteria for testing include:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Muscle or body aches
- Nausea or vomiting
We want to remind our community to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a mask, staying at least six feet apart from other individuals, washing your hands often and staying home as much as possible. If we each do our part we can protect each other and reduce transmission of the virus.
This testing site is currently closed as of Friday, April 2nd 2021.
