LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A Henderson skilled nursing center has reported 10 resident deaths related to COVID-19 in the past week as the virus continues to take its toll in the Las Vegas valley.

Del Mar Gardens of Green Valley is one of 10 nursing homes, assisted living homes and skilled nursing facilities to report deaths since our last report on Sept. 6. The numbers of cases and deaths have been steadily building since mid-July at Del Mar Gardens, where there are now a total of 27 deaths — 26 residents and one staff member. There have been 109 positive tests from residents and 31 from staff members since the pandemic began.

Those numbers make the facility second only to The Heights of Summerlin for the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the state. The Heights has seen 12 more cases and one more death than Del Mar Gardens.

Notably, only four new facilities appeared on the report, which now lists more than 200 facilities. Only one place reported more than five new positive cases — 17 at TLC Care Center, with 9 residents and 8 staff member testing positive.
