93 new COVID-19 cases reported by SNHD, totaling 443 of Nevada’s 535

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Southern Nevada Health District is reporting 93 new COVID-19 cases, pushing the total to 443 in Southern Nevada.

Statewide, 535 cases are reported by the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services.

Washoe County reported eight new cases late Friday afternoon. Also in that report: a fifth person has recovered after testing positive.

There have been 10 deaths in Nevada, all in Clark County.

The 93 new cases in Southern Nevada likely means the state will surpass 100 new cases for the second consecutive day. Due to differences in when test results are conveyed to the state, it’s hard to determine when counties will report numbers the state might already have.

Smaller communities in Nevada are dealing with new cases:

Elko County in northwest Nevada reported its third case on Friday, a week after its last update. A news release indicated the person was self-isolating at home. The two people who had previously tested positive continue to self-isolate at home, and their conditions are stable.

One new case has been reported in Douglas County, for a total of 4 cases there. Douglas County is just south of Carson City.

On Thursday, Eureka County declared a state of emergency to make certain people were not being complacent as the virus spreads. There have been no positive reports to date in Eureka County.
