UNLV Medicine has received approximately 2,000 calls per day from Las Vegas residents seeking a test for COVID-19 since curbside testing was announced Tuesday, according to a spokesperson.
The CDC and Southern Nevada Health District are telling us to stay home, even if we’re sick. Unless we have a high fever, worsening cough, and difficulty breathing — the symptoms of COVID-19 — the best course of action is to call our doctor; if an exam is necessary, make it virtual. That means a lot of people will be staying home sick.
