BOULDER CITY – The City of Boulder City wants rtheir esidents to remain informed and protected in order to safeguard residents from this COVID-19, so starting today, a total of four clinics will be held, including weekly community testing, at the Boulder City Fire Department.

Boulder City, in partnership with Boulder City Hospital the Southern Nevada Health District, plan to offer community testing, by appointment, at the Fire Department on Tuesday mornings through July from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. This will be dependent on staffing availability, as Fire and EMS response will take precedent (if a significant event happens, appointments would be rescheduled).

Boulder City Paramedics and Boulder City Hospital Nurses will administer the nasal swab tests, which are shorter and far less invasive than the earlier tests. Patients must provide a name, address, and contact information in order to get the free testing. Results take about one week. No doctors orders are required.

You must be a Boulder City resident and have an appointment in advance. Call 702.293.9256 to make an appointment.
