ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- As Albuquerque continues to do what it can to slow the spread of COVID-19, city officials wants businesses to be mindful of how they're handling the matter during the tough times.

Mayor Tim Keller said, at a Wednesday briefing, it is not mandatory employees get tested before going to work.


He also reminded people that COVID-19 tests are prioritized for those who have symptoms, including a dry cough, fever or shortness of breath.

"You should only get tested if you're symptomatic and please go through the screening process with the state hotline," Keller said.
