NORTH LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The first Walmart COVID-19 test site in Nevada will open on May 4 in the parking lot of the Walmart store located at 1807 West Craig Road in North Las Vegas.
The drive-thru will serve the public Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. It is available by appointment only.
People who would like to be tested must first qualify for COVID-19 screening. This is determined based on current CDC guidelines.
Individuals are asked to arrive 10 minutes before their scheduled appointment. They must bring:
- Confirmation of their appointment
- Insurance card and valid photo ID
During the appointment, people can expect the following:
- To remain in their vehicle for verification of eligibility, ID check and sample self-collection.
- To perform a self-administered nasal swab under the observation of a healthcare provider. The sealed sample will be dropped into a container on the way out of the drive-thru site. Directions will be provided.
The site is supported by Walmart, Quest Diagnostics and state and local officials. It will test those who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 and all health care providers and first responders. Testing is not available inside Walmart stores.
Results will be sent through MyQuest’s secure online portal or app. Individuals may also receive a call from the telehealth partner, PWN. According to a news release, the average time to report results is between 2-3 days after collection.
