COVID-19 Information

Carson City Health and Human Services updates information such as case numbers, testing events, playbooks, vaccine scheduling, and resources daily for the quad-county region on their website gethealthycarsoncity.org. For questions regarding COVID-19 testing, the best contact number is the Quad-County COVID Hotline (775) 434-1988. The hotline is available for all questions and is open Monday-Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm.

If you were tested at a Carson City Health and Human Services Community Based Testing event, you click here to access your test results via the patient portal.

For COVID-19 vaccine related inquiries please email covidvaccine@carson.org. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. At this time, DCCH is not stocking COVID vaccines as we are joining efforts with the quad-counties and together vaccinating at all the events as one large team.
