County detox center reopens after virus scare

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A county-run detox facility in Southeast Albuquerque is once again taking clients after shutting down last week following a COVID-19 infection.

Evan Gonzales, a Bernalillo County spokesman, said the CARE campus — formally known as MATS — is open for intakes.

The CARE campus was shutdown last Thursday when a client tested positive for the virus shortly after leaving the facility.

“All staff and clients with possible exposure have been tested and all results are negative,” Gonzales said.
