Testing Requirements

Per updated ECECD Health And Safety Requirements for New Mexico Child Care Facilities and Early Childhood Care Professionals, effective Tuesday, June 1, 2021:

  • Fully vaccinated staff and practicum students do not need to be tested for COVID-19 unless they are involved in a rapid response situation.
  • Non-vaccinated staff testing requirements reduced to once every two months.

The complete and most up to date requirements can be found at: nmececd.org.
Please ask your staff to make appointments for on-site testing via the Department of Health Registration Application Portal. Please include the name of the child care facility when registering. If your organization has multiple sites, please provide the address of the facility where you work. In the case of a Rapid Response to a positive case, staff, parents and other caregivers, who were a close contact, will use the same portal to register for testing. Additionally, please ask them to include the name of the child care facility when they register.
