The Nevada COVID Call Center is now able to support the needs of residents related to testing and therapeutic services, as well as vaccine schedules. This number is 1 (800) 401-0946 and is open between 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM, seven days a week. All services are free to the residents. The newest services the state is offering include free therapy for pre-exposure prophylaxis for those residents who qualify, as well as medication for those individuals who test positive for COVID and may be at risk for severe disease. It is extremely important that residents call to get a telehealth visit as soon as possible after symptoms start, so options for oral antiviral medications may be another option for them (it must occur within 3 days of symptom onset).
*Testing locations are not endorsed or vetted by the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services or Washoe County School District.
