COVID-19 Screening & Testing

Early recognition of COVID-19 symptoms and testing is critical to slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Complete a self-screening to determine if you need a test by asking yourself the following questions:

  • Do I have any symptoms of COVID-19?
    (Symptoms may include a fever with a temperature over 100.0 F, chills or shivering, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, cough, difficulty breathing, a changed or reduced sense of smell or taste, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and/or diarrhea.)
  • Have I had close contact (within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has been confirmed to have COVID-19?

If you answered yes to either you should be tested as soon as possible and quarantine until you receive your test results.

Testing Locations

Our COVID-19 testing locations treat people 2 years of age and above. Patients younger than 2 years of age should schedule an appointment for testing with their provider or at an urgent care clinic.

If it has been recommended or you are interested in getting a COVID-19 test, there are testing sites around the state. For the most complete list, visit the NM Department of Health link below.

Presbyterian has recently experienced an increase in asymptomatic (no symptoms) individuals seeking COVID-19 testing in our urgent cares, emergency departments and PRESNow locations. Please note that Presbyterian does not offer testing for asymptomatic (no symptoms) individuals at these locations.

If you are asymptomatic (no symptoms) and want to get a COVID-19 test, please refer to the list of testing sites below and follow their instructions. Thank you for your partnership in helping keep our community healthy.

  • We recommend that you call the site to make sure testing is available. Hours are subject to change with little notice.
  • Bring a mask and be prepared to wear it.
  • Bring a picture ID, your insurance card(s) or insurance information. First responders also bring your employee badge.
  • Patients under age 18 must have a parent, guardian or power of attorney present to be tested.
  • Please be prepared that you may have a wait time once you arrive at the testing site.

Generally, there is no charge to you for COVID-19 testing.

If you have health insurance, COVID-19 testing will be billed to your insurance. We will need your insurance information to do this for you. Your health insurer may still require you to pay a co-pay or high deductible costs that have to do with the COVID-19 test. While most insurances are covering these costs, you should check with your health insurer to find out more. If you receive any other services (such as blood tests, x-rays, or breathing treatments) at the same visit, you may have to pay out-of-pocket costs. Presbyterian is covering the cost of COVID-19 testing for individuals without insurance during the pandemic.

Notice: Holidays may affect the hours at these testing locations. If appointments are not available on a holiday, the testing site is closed. If you need further information, please call before you arrive.
