Testing for COVID-19 is ramping up across New Mexico.
Some testing sites require a referral from a doctor or a call to schedule in advance. Some are drive-up, and others are screened at the door.
Only patients who have symptoms — a fever, shortness of breath and a dry cough — should get tested to save supplies, according to the state Department of Health.
