LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Clark County, in collaboration with the Southern Nevada Health District and Community Ambulance will offer free COVID-19 testing for residents of Indian Springs and Cold Creek on Saturday between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m., at the Indian Springs Fire Station, 715 W. Gretta Lane.

No appointment is needed for Saturday’s testing.

The site will have about 200 self-administered nasal swab tests available on a first-come, first-served basis. Most of the testing will occur on a walk-up basis unless patients are unable to get out of their cars. Patients are asked to bring a valid ID and wear a face covering. All results, positive or negative, are reported to the Health District.

Patients who test positive for the virus are contacted by the Health District within a few days. If patients do not receive notification of a positive test result, they can rest assured knowing that they tested negative.

 Officials are working to offer a variety of COVID-19 testing options to the public. A list of COVID-19 testing events sponsored by the Southern Nevada Health District is available on its website at https://www.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/covid-19-testing-sites.
