Department of Health announces COVID-19 screening in Raton


The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH)’s reports a COVID-19 screening Tuesday, March 31st Raton High School, 1535 Tiger Circle in Raton from 10 am to 3 pm or while supplies last.

Priority testing will be provided for the following:

  • People experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 infection: fever, cough, or shortness of breath;
  • People who have traveled from Europe (to include Italy), China, Iran, South Korea, Japan, Seattle, New York City, San Francisco and Portland

It is critical to know before attending these screenings 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.

Please try to limit two people per vehicle to avoid unnecessary risk for viral spread. No insurance is required for screening.

New Mexicans with health-related questions can call our coronavirus hotline at 855-600-3453.  For 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 updates its dedicated COVID-19 webpage​ with additional tests as the state lab provides results.
