Department of Health Providing COVID-19 Testing in Roswell

March 19, 2020 - Influenza Surveillance - Alert

The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH)’s Public Health Division will be providing COVID-19 coronavirus testing Thursday, March 19th from 9 am to 3 pm at 1535-1761 North Grand Avenue in Roswell, NM

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.

For this event, traffic will enter from Garden Street and will exit onto Grand Ave.

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 newmexico.gov, 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.
