  SANTA FE –The New Mexico Department of Health announces its latest drive-up screening for the COVID-19 coronavirus for all essential workers Wednesday, April 29th at the Las Cruces Public Health Office, 1170 N. Solano Dr. from 7 am to 12 pm or while test supplies last.


The screening is the third “test and go” opportunity scheduled within the last two weeks for all Doña Ana County essential workers – with or without COVID-19 symptoms - to include: first responders, health care workers, long-term care workers, child day care staff, government employees, utility workers and any employees of all essential business.
