Community-Based Asymptomatic COVID Testing Now Available

Drive_thru testing setup

Churchill County has developed a plan for random, voluntary community-based COVID testing using its three commission districts. 

The County’s Social Services Department will staff a call center and citizens may request drive-through testing beginning on May 7. Drive-through testing will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays by appointment only at the Churchill County Fairgrounds. 

The goal is to test a total of 42 citizens from each district per testing date on a first-call, first-scheduled basis. This will result in 252 tests per week or 1% of our population being tested weekly. 

Volunteer community-based drive-through testing will take place for 10 weeks to gather data on 10 percent of our total population. Testing appointments are required; please do not just show up and request a test.

To voluntarily schedule your COVID test, please call 775-423-6695 (select option 2) weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. You will be scheduled for your test and given further instructions. Please leave a message if prompted and you will be called back as phone lines are busy.
