The City of North Las Vegas is partnering with the Southern Nevada Health District and Station Casinos to offer free COVID-19 testing Tuesday, June 9 and Wednesday, June 10 at Texas Station Hotel & Casino.

Up to 800 tests will be available each day on a first-come, first-serve basis. No appointments are needed. The testing is free and available to drive-thru and walk-up clients from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on both days.

”During this pandemic, North Las Vegas has worked hard to bring as many testing opportunities as possible directly to our residents,” said Councilwoman Pamela Goynes-Brown, who represents Ward 2, which includes Texas Station. “This site will provide 1,600 more tests as we continue working to slow the spread of the virus and responsibly reopen our city and the state. I want to thank the Southern Nevada Health District and Stations Casinos for partnering with us.”

Testing will take place on the first floor of the Texas Station parking garage, 2101 Texas Star Lane, North Las Vegas. Please follow the signs on site.

Identification and a telephone number are required for each person receiving a test. Results will be given via phone within a week.

In addition to continued testing, officials say it will continue to be important for residents to help limit the spread of COVID-19 by frequently washing hands, social distancing and wearing face coverings in public places. Also, it is important to cover your coughs and sneezes and if you or someone in your household tests positive for COVID-19, limit your contact with others.
