A new “Stop, Swab & Go” COVID-19 testing site will be open Monday through Friday next week at Eldorado High School, 1139 Linn Lane, near Nellis Boulevard and Washington Avenue, as an additional location to the existing three sites in the Las Vegas Valley and Mesquite.

A drive-thru site will be located in the school’s parking lot. Walk-up testing will be available in the school gym.

Free testing as part of the “Stop, Swab and Go” program is available Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. at all Las Vegas locations.

The tests are free, self-administered nasal swabs. No proof of health insurance is required. The tests are available to anyone who wants to be tested, whether people have symptoms or not, including families and children.

The public can register online for appointments here.
