Local COVID-19 Viral Testing Announcement

May 7, 2020

This is only a viral test, NOT an antibody test.

The City of Mesquite is pleased to announce a local drive-through COVID-19 testing site. This is a coordinated effort between Mesa View Regional Hospital, Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) and the City of Mesquite. The City has received testing supplies from the Southern Nevada Health District to safely and effectively test up to 50 people per day on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. beginning Tuesday, May 12, 2020. The drive-through testing will be held in the parking lot at 830 west Hafen Lane.

The Southern Nevada Health District has partnered with the City to provide testing kits with no charge and will be processed by their lab.   Mesa View Regional Hospital is providing medical personnel to administer the test.  The testing is open to residents of Mesquite, Bunkerville, Moapa Valley, and Mohave County. Test results will be given to the individual through a phone call within four-five days from the testing date. 

Anyone wishing to be tested must first register by calling 702-625-3213 to provide basic demographic information and be given an appointment time. The City asks that you do not show up more than five minutes prior to your scheduled test time, and you should expect the testing process to take approximately 10 minutes to complete from the time you arrive.  No test will be administered without an appointment.

The City of Mesquite wishes to thank all those who have worked diligently to bring COVID-19 testing to Mesquite; Mesa View Regional Hospital, SNHD, City staff and volunteers.
