Southern Nevada Health District offers drive-through COVID-19 testing at Allegiant Stadium on April 7
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
April 7, 2021
LAS VEGAS – The Southern Nevada Health District is offering drive-through COVID-19 testing on Wednesday, April 7, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Allegiant Stadium. Testing will occur in Lot H which is located off Dean Martin Drive via Gate 10. Each person getting tested can be pre-registered at www.snhd.info/get-tested/allegiant.
Traveling increases the chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to recommend people delay all non-essential travel. However, people who had time off during spring break may have taken vacations or trips to see relatives that had been deferred due to the ongoing pandemic.
For people who have traveled, the drive-through clinic offers an opportunity for the entire family to get tested. The CDC travel guidance includes recommendations to get tested three to five days after returning from a travel destination. People who are able should also stay home and self-quarantine for a full seven days, even if they test negative. For people who don’t get tested, it is recommended they stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel. The CDC is still recommending against non-essential travel for fully- vaccinated people.
Beginning April 5, COVID-19 vaccine eligibility will be open to everyone 16 years and older. However, vaccines are just one of the tools available to stop the pandemic. Getting tested, wearing a face mask in public places and around people who have not been vaccinated, and washing hands frequently continue to be important measures to take to keep COVID-19 case counts down and the positivity rate trending down in Southern Nevada.
