Department of Health providing COVID-19 testing in Taos
Testing for people sick or who recently have recently traveled

SANTA FE – The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH)’s Public Health Division will be providing COVID-19 coronavirus testing Wednesday, March 25th at Taos High School, 134 Cervantes Street in Taos.

Priority testing will be provided for the following:
People sick with symptoms of COVID-19 infection: fever, cough, or shortness of breath;
People who have recently traveled from Europe (to include Italy), China, Iran, South Korea, Japan, Seattle, New York City, San Francisco and Portland.

It is critical that all New Mexicans know 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.

New Mexicans who have health related questions can call the Coronavirus Hotline at 855-600-3453. Non-health-related questions or concerns, call 833-551-0518 or visit, which is being updated and finalized as a one-stop source for information.

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