Are you concerned that you have COVID-19 symptoms or might have been exposed to the virus? If you do not have symptoms, you should wait 5 days from the time of exposure before testing.
Beginning June 6, appointments are available (but not required) and can be made using our online scheduling or by calling 775.625.7000. Look for the designated parking on Mizpah Street, next to the hospital. You will remain in your car and our staff will come to you after you check-in by phone. Please bring your ID and insurance card with you. There is a fee of $150 for the screening test.
COVID tests can be performed at any HGH clinic when you have an appointment with the provider. Patients that have respiratory symptoms should socially distance themselves from other patients when possible. As a reminder, all patients, visitors, and staff are required to wear masks when at HGH.
Free home COVID-19 tests available
Free COVID home tests can be picked up Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the screening table in the hospital’s main entrance and at clinics throughout the hospital. People are encouraged to pick up test kits to keep at home, even if they are not immediately needed. It is important to note that the home tests are not for hospital diagnostic purposes. If you require care at the hospital, your provider may require additional testing to confirm your diagnosis.
Pediatric vaccines available
Pediatric Pfizer vaccines are available for children ages 5-11 years in the office of Dr. Veronica Janhunen. To schedule an appointment, parents can call 775.621.5691. The child does not have to be a current patient of Dr. Janhunen to schedule an appointment.
