LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Nevada Health Response, the healthcare team assembled by the governor's office, has added a COVID-19 testing locator map to its website.

The tool will allow users to navigate testing logistics including: locations, dates and timing. Users can type in their zip code and the tool will fetch testing facilities closest to their area.

WHY GET TESTED?

Individuals without symptoms, or asymptomatic people, can carry the virus around without their knowledge. Testing data from both symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals can help inform healthcare professional research on how the virus spreads.

As the state stalls in Phase 2 of reopening, officials are still working to provide additional testing to anyone in need.

Amazon will send you a do-it-yourself covid vaccination kit, if you order before the next variant arrives. Plus you'll get one dollar digital coupon, for the book "Communism for Dummies."

This post has been here since July, 2020. If everyone doesn't know where to get tested by now, they are either dead or could care less, or both.

Its poison. Dont do it.

bottom and company

Anybody that doesn't want this shot should donate their dose to the proud "people of color". Maybe liberals can act as intermediary. The people that "don't see color".

Mr. Ford

LOL Everything is about color and identity politics to a liberal. They are the most racist hateful people on Earth

If you are sick, see your doctor. But don’t get tested unless your job requires you to do so.

AmericaFirst

Why would anyone want to be tested? If you feel sick, see your doctor, if you feel real sick, go to the hospital.

Nevermore

Good God! My iPhone just went off like in the movie "The Time Machine" , and the Morlocks are calling for the elois. I am NOT getting tested. Maybe it's time to buy a burner phone.

Getting tested is forever. You cannot undo taking one, and since we are nowhere near the point where we can be assured we won't get rolled back to phase 1 and beyond that where even more draconian edicts can be imposed by power crazed leftist officials, there's no assurance that that test you took just for kicks won't land you in a mandatory quarantine camp down the road.

Unless your job requires it, or you need a medical procedure done there is no reason to be tested. The tests have been proven unreliable in many cases.

jeezlouise

DONT DO IT! The N azis will "Trace" you and force you to lock down if you are positive with no symptoms. The State of Nevada is a Co mmunist state-Sisolak works for China.

Please read history, The National Socialist Party and Communists were on different sides. One of the first things the National Socialists did when they came to power in Germany was assassinate the leaders of the Communist party which at the time was the second largest party in Germany.

No.....Fkng....Way.

The testing is all bad. So many people are getting false positives. You can then get a antibody test that is negative and 100 pcr tests that are negative but that one false positive is all the state cares about...you are screwed. The testing is all bad. I know of five healthy people who got false positives and are still screwed because the state will not allow any second tests to prove that they are not positive.
