N.M. Department of Health offering COVID-19 screenings in Taos Wednesday

Posted

Public health officials will be providing COVID-19 coronavirus testing in Taos tomorrow (Wednesday, March 25) at Taos High School, 134 Cervantes Street, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., according to a statement from the Department of Health.

Priority screening will be provided for:

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

Department of Health officials emphasized that those without symptoms of COVID-19 infection do not need testing for COVID-19.

"We are currently in allergy season," said Department of Health Media Manager David Morgan in a statement, "and having allergy symptoms such as sneezing and itchy eyes, nose or throat is not an indication for testing."

Officials are requesting a limit of two people per vehicle to avoid unnecessary risk for viral spread. No insurance is required for screening, officials said.
