This is only a viral test, NOT an antibody test.
The community COVID-19 virus testing will only be offered Tuesday of each week in the morning at the Mesquite Fire Station behind City Hall. It is important to schedule your test ahead of time by logging on to https://health.mesquitenv.gov/covid-testing
If you are experiencing COVID symptoms you should seek testing immediately. Calling your normal physician is a great start, as they will give direction and can call ahead orders to speed up the process. Mesa View Regional Hospital Emergency Room is always open and should be utilized if you are severely sick. Mesa View Regional Hospital can administer COVID-19 virus tests with physicians orders or by an order obtained through their clinic. Mesa View Regional Hospital does have the ability to do Coronavirus Antibody Testing if a physician has ordered it.
Other options for COVID-19 testing are available but you will need to drive to St. George or Las Vegas. Both communities have various testing sites open daily. There are many resources online for finding these options. Each option may have different requirements and locations may move as needed.
We understand that these changes can be frustrating and we empathize with the hardships that everyone has had to bear. We are hopeful that these changes are moving us into more normal phases and as always we will adapt to the needs of the community.
