Elko County To Begin Ramping Up Coronavirus Testing
Elko County residents will have access to COVID-19 tests beginning next Wednesday.
The Elko Daily Free Press reports that Nevada National Guard troops will assist the county in meeting a Phase 1 reopening goal of testing between 2,500 and 3,000 residents over four days.
The tests will be administered at the Elko Convention Center. A county health official says that about 60 to 100 people could be tested per hour, with results expected three to five days later.
When community-based testing is finished, Elko County could move into Phase 2 of reopening plans, where the state will consider reopening schools, bars, and other areas.
