LAS VEGAS – The COVID-19 testing site at UNLV’s Stan Fulton Building, 801 E. Flamingo Road, will be closed Sunday, April 4 for Easter Sunday. Testing resumes at 8 a.m. Monday, April 5. Testing is available at this site seven days per week from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Appointments for testing are recommended and can be scheduled through University Medical Center’s website, www.umcsn.com. People who have no internet access can call UMC at (702) 789-5160 to schedule a testing appointment. For additional testing locations, visit the Southern Nevada Health District’s COVID-19 testing resources page: https://covid.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/testing/
The UNLV site accepts some walk-in clients each day on a first-come, first-served basis as staffing allows but priority is given to people with appointments. Testing is free and available for people who are uninsured as well as those with insurance; however, insurance information is requested from people who are insured during the registration process for billing purposes in order to recoup some testing-related costs.
The Southern Nevada Health District encourages testing for asymptomatic or symptomatic people, or anyone who has had close contact with a person who is confirmed to have COVID-19. This contact means someone who has been within six feet of a person with COVID for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more in a 24-hour period of time. Testing is also recommended for people who have participated in activities that put them at higher risk for infection because they were not able to practice social distancing, as well as anyone who has been referred for testing by a health care provider.
