The town of Taos is offering free, drive-through COVID testing Wednesday (Jan. 13) between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Taos Youth and Family Center parking lot (407 Paseo del Cañon East).

The testing will "help minimize the spread of the virus in Taos," according to press release. "Reducing the spread will help Taos County move from Red to Green more quickly and allow for economic activity."

The drive-through test is a self-administered saliva test and the results will be available by text or email within 48 to 72 hours.

People wishing to get tested need to register online. Schedule a date and time to test by visiting, then search for "Taos" under the "Testing Sites" link.

The press release asks that people not eat, drink or smoke anything for half an hour before testing.
