Coronavirus New Mexico

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Three new COVID-19 testing sites closed early Tuesday when they ran out of test kits but officials say they will be restocked Wednesday.

Optum New Mexico started testing at three of its locations near I-25 and Paseo, Tramway and I-40 and Rio Rancho.

At least 2,000 people were screened across the three sites Tuesday and 500 of those people were tested before they ran out of kits.

Testing is also still taking place at the Pres Now clinic at Coors and Western Trail. Before going to any of those sites, you are urged to get screened over the phone or online. The drive-thru at Lovelace closed after it ran out of kits. No word yet when it might reopen.
