We all need to do our part to keep our community safe. Please wear face coverings in public places, keep gatherings small over the holidays, wash hands frequently, and stay home of you are sick.”

Clark County and UMC are operating the site in partnership with the Nevada National Guard, UNLV, and University Police Services. The relocated testing site at UNLV’s Stan Fulton Building will be open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday through Thursdays, when operations resume. The site is closed Fridays and Saturdays.
