Due to the Public Health Emergency, the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) has asked that any patient who suspects they have coronavirus not be seen in clinic. This will help prevent the spread of the virus to non-infected patients. The majority of coronavirus patients can be managed by your provider over the telephone.
The NMDOH is asking New Mexicans to call the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) Coronavirus Hotline at 1-855-600-3453 if any of the following are true:
> You have fever, cough, or shortness of breath or were in contact with a person known to have COVID-19.
