The state of New Mexico has partnered with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to launch a dramatically expanded COVID-19 testing effort across southern New Mexico. The Department of Health has established 12 new testing sites across southern counties, where skyrocketing positivity rates indicate the virus is spreading rapidly.

“Please get tested if you feel sick or if you’ve been exposed,” said Acting Health Secretary Billy Jimenez. “Please don’t leave your house if you don’t have to. Please remain in isolation, if you’ve been tested, until you receive a negative result. Please help stop the spread of COVID-19.”

Residents must pre-register for a test at www.doineedacovid19test.com.

Portales: 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Eastern NM University, Greyhound Stadium (Home Parking Lot), 1751 West University Drive, Portales, NM 88130
