LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Starting Jan. 13, the drive-thru COVID-19 testing site at Texas Station will operate three days a week, Wednesday through Friday, starting at 8 a.m.

The site will offer coronavirus testing on a first-come, first-served basis each day of operation while supplies last.

The Texas Station site operates in the hotel’s parking garage at 2101 Texas Star Lane. No appointments are available at the site, and no insurance is necessary. Clark County and the Nevada National Guard are supporting the Southern Nevada Health District in operating the site.

The Health District oversees on-site registration, lab processing of samples and the notifications of test results.

Also, starting this week, the two sites overseen by UMC – UNLV and Cashman Center – will begin requesting insurance information during the registration process. There will continue to be no-out-of-pocket costs to patients, including the uninsured, but the insurance of patients who have it will be billed in order to recoup some testing-related costs.

The UNLV site, located at 801 E. Flamingo Road, operates 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. It is closed Fridays and Saturdays.

The Cashman site, located in Exhibit Hall A at 850 N. Las Vegas Blvd., operates 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and is closed Sundays and Mondays.

Appointments at both sites are highly recommended to reduce wait times and maintain operational efficiency.

Appointments can be self-scheduled through UMC’s website.

Those with no online access may call UMC at (702) 383-2619 to schedule appointments.
