LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County and UMC announced that Friday, July 31, is the last day drive-thru COVID-19 testing will be available inside the parking garage at UNLV’s Tropicana Avenue parking garage.

The testing operation is moving indoors to the Thomas & Mack Center’s Strip View Pavilion, located on the northwest side of the facility off Tropicana Avenue and University Center Drive, and is scheduled to re-open during the second week of August.

Clark County and UMC are operating the site in partnership with the Nevada National Guard, UNLV and University Police Services.

The testing site inside the Thomas & Mack Center will resume operations of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday when it re-opens.

“Clark County’s staff at the Fire Department and UMC along with Nevada National Guard have done an amazing job operating the UNLV drive-through site since it opened at the end of May,” said Clark County Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick. “The new indoor operation will allow us to move out of the summer heat into a more comfortable setting for patients.”
