The New Mexico Department of Health purchased at-home COVID-19 test kits for distribution to areas with high social vulnerability to provide the tools necessary for residents to help combat the surge in COVID-19 cases in New Mexico.

For information, or questions about availability, residents can call the City facility where they want to pick up test kits.
