As cases in our community continue to grow, the demand for COVID-19 testing has been increasing in our area. It’s important to locate the appropriate type of testing site for you or your child to ensure quick access and results. Our partners at Presbyterian have recently experienced an increase in asymptomatic (no symptom) individuals seeking COVID-19 testing in their urgent care facilities, emergency departments and locations. We have been asked to notify you that Presbyterian does not offer testing for asymptomatic individuals at these sites. Should an asymptomatic individual seek a test at these sites, it will create a delay in getting a test as they will be directed elsewhere.
As a reminder, testing sites are available throughout the state and COVID-19 testing should be accessed through these designated NMDOH testing sites, instead of an urgent care or emergency room.
To find a testing location near you, please visit the New Mexico Department of Health’s testing site at https://cv.nmhealth.org/public-health-screening-and-testing
