UNLV Medicine Gets More Tests, Can Test Through Thursday

The clinical arm of the University of Nevada Las Vegas’s School of Medicine has received another shipment of COVID-19 testing kits, extending the time screenings can be administered.

UNLV Medicine says the new supply will allow curbside testing - by appointment only – until Thursday.

Doctors had expected to run out of tests Tuesday, but the latest batch arrived yesterday. UNLV Medicine has tested more than 2,000 people for the novel coronavirus since March 23.
