COVID-19

The City of Boulder City is committed to your health and well-being. Please refer to this page for current information regarding the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including links to information from the CDC, the State of Nevada, and Southern Nevada Health District.

TESTING

The Boulder City Fire Department has seen a significant decrease for COVID testing since late February. There are also more at-home tests available than in the past several months. Due to these factors, the Fire Department closed testing on March 14, 2022. 

If you need a test, the Fire Department will provide home test kits free of charge, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday. There is a limit of two test kits per household, and you must be at least 18 years old to obtain kits.

If you prefer an in-person test, please visit the Southern Nevada Health District at https://covid.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/testing/ for information on clinics.

MASK MANDATE TERMINATED

Nevada  Emergency Directive 52 went into effect on February, 2021, terminating the State Mask Mandate. There are still some locations that require masks (public transportation, airports). 

  • The emergency directive is available here.
  • More guidance is available here.

VACCINATIONS/BOOSTERS

The Boulder City Fire Department is committed to making sure residents can obtain vaccinations and/or boosters. There may be some people who are home-bound and in need of a vaccination/booster. Individuals or their family members can email at homeboundvaccine@clarkcountynv.gov to get someone out to their house. Once they make contact, the county emails the Boulder City Fire Department, where staff arranges to visit their house with the specific vaccine they need.

Other residents can obtain vaccines or boosters through the Southern Nevada Health District and some pharmacies. Learn more here.
