The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) has partnered with University Medical Center (UMC) to provide a convenient COVID-19 testing center for visitors requiring testing for travel and convention attendees on the Las Vegas Strip, just steps from the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), which is also the World Trade Center Las Vegas (WTCLV).
The testing center is located at Las Vegas Boulevard and Elvis Presley Boulevard at the site that was formerly the Riviera Hotel. Due to its centralized location, the center will also allow tradeshow operators to offer onsite testing for exhibitors and attendees.
Through June, PCR testing is available by appointment Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The site also accepts a limited number of walk-ins, based on availability. The hours of operation may be expanded as needed to accommodate the LVCC/WTCLV tradeshow schedule. The price is $130.00 per PCR test and results are expected within 24 hours. This price includes customized travel documentation for international and domestic travelers.
UMC continues to serve as Nevada’s leader in COVID-19 testing, with more than 1.2 million tests performed. The LVCC/WTCLV partnered with UMC in 2020 to serve as a COVID-19 testing site for local workers. The facility also served as a mass vaccination site, with more than 200,000 doses of the vaccine administered throughout the year.
