Health & Fitness Fair postponed

March 11, 2020

ELKO, Nevada – Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital (NNRH) announced today that it will offer free lab work to all interested community members through April 15th. The free lab work was intended to be offered at the Ruby Radio Health & Fitness Fair this Saturday, March 14th. However, that event has been postponed due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19.

“We know that many of our community members look forward to these free screenings,” said Steve Simpson, chief executive officer at NNRH. “Folks plan their annual check-ups with their doctor around getting their lab results. So, we want to make sure these screenings are still available for free.”

According to Simpson, anyone may come to the laboratory at NNRH and request the “health fair draw” between now and April 15th.  No appointment is necessary, and the hospital lab is open to the public seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

NNRH is also still planning to participate in the Health & Fitness Fair when it is re-scheduled later this year.

“We know it was a difficult decision for Ruby Radio to postpone this major event, but we commend them for putting the health of our community first,” Simpson remarked. “Whenever the Health & Fitness Fair is held, we’ll be there offering these screenings. At the end of the day, it’s about making our community healthier.
