LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Clark County and Southern Nevada Health District announced Wednesday that COVID-19 testing would be available at Sam's Town starting next week.

Testing will take place Tuesday, May 26 and Wednesday, May 27 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. in the parking garage of the Sam's Town Hotel, located off the property entrance on Boulder Highway and East Flamingo Road. Testing is free for anyone, officials said.

Drive-thru and walk-up clients will be accepted, officials said, and no appointment is necessary. The site will accommodate 500 tests daily on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Clark County is working with multiple community partners to make COVID-19 testing readily available in a variety of locations to all our residents,” Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom said in a statement. “The key to keeping people safe as we reopen our economy is to be able to accurately identify positive cases and encourage people to self-isolate to limit the spread of the virus while it continues to be a threat to public health.”
