While testing for active COVID-19 is a critical component in helping to prevent the spread of illness, the CDC does not recommend the university test everyone as they return to campus. In accordance with this guidance, UNLV will not be performing widespread testing.

Additionally, the UNLV Student Health Center and the Faculty and Staff Treatment (FAST) Center offer viral testing.
