Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - The City of Henderson in partnership with the Southern Nevada Health District is offering more COVID-19 testing opportunities for no charge on Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Heritage Park Senior Facility, located at 300 S. Racetrack Road (at Burkholder).

Testing is walk-up and by appointment only. Patients experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 will have a separate entry and exit to the testing site to minimize exposure for non-symptomatic patients. The test will be self-administered using a nasal swab. Patients must present a valid photo identification, wear a face covering at all times and practice social distancing.

Patients may schedule an appointment by visiting the Southern Nevada Health District website at snhd.info/get-tested/heritage or by scanning the QR code that is attached to this release.

The Southern Nevada Health District will provide positive test results directly to patients. All other results will be available by accessing the SNHD’s test results website.
