Reno private school closes after surge in COVID-19 cases

Coronavirus

RENO, Nev. — A private Catholic school in Reno for kindergartners through eighth graders is temporarily closing its doors due to numerous COVID-19 cases.

Our Lady of the Snows Catholic School is closing at least until Sept. 27, according to the Reno Gazette Journal.

One entire classroom was under quarantine.

On Wednesday, Nevada’s hospital association urged residents to stay out of emergency rooms except in true emergencies, especially in northern Nevada where a resurgence in COVID-19 cases continues at a rate twice as high as Las Vegas.

One Reno hospital has started restricting visitors but another says it has no current plans to re-open a temporary care site in a parking garage.
