Renown Health Responds to COVID-19
At Renown Health, we are prepared to safely screen, diagnose and care for patients with respiratory illness, such as cough or shortness of breath, including COVID-19.
This website provides regularly updated information from Renown. Please visit the Washoe County Health District website for the latest updates on our community.
There is no walk-in testing or swabbing for COVID-19 at Renown locations. Find out more about our current screening process.
We're Here For You
We're here for you now more than ever with new processes and procedures to ensure safety and convenience for your healthcare needs.
Beginning Friday, June 26, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak is requiring face coverings be worn while in public to continue flattening the curve and to limit our community’s risk for exposure and infection. Wearing face coverings is important to our personal health and safety and to our community businesses and economy.
We understand not everyone in our community is able to wear a face covering due to certain conditions. Patients who reach out to Renown care providers and employees requesting a note of exemption from wearing a face covering will be directed to Section 3 of Governor Sisloak's order. In Section 3, it states that “persons exempted under this provision shall not be required to produce documentation verifying the condition.” Renown will follow the Governor’s language and will not write any notes for patients requesting an exemption. We appreciate your understanding and support as we fight the good fight for the health of northern Nevada.
