LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - A new testing site for COVID-19 opens Wednesday at UNLV.

The site will be located in the parking garage next to the Thomas and Mack Center. Clark County is partnering with University Medical Center and says they will be able to accomodate 1,200 tests per day.

The testing site was originally at the Orleans Hotel and Casino, but the final day for testing there was last Friday.

The hours of operation are 8am-4pm every day but Sunday.

The site will be set up to take both drive-thru and walk-up patients. Children of all ages can get tested as well, provided they have parental consent.

Patients can access the testing site by entering the Thomas & Mack parking lot from the west on University Center Drive. You can schedule an appointment at umcsn.com or by calling (702) 795-4932.
