DHHS dashboard nursing homes

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The number of new positive tests and COVID-19 deaths has slowed at Nevada-regulated facilities, but residents and staff are still seeing outbreaks.

Information from the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services is reported on a dashboard, and cases are sometimes reported after patients have already recovered. Since our last report on June 5, 72 new positive tests and 13 deaths have been reported by DHHS. Currently, there are 1,361 positive tests at all the facilities the state regulates, which includes correctional facilities — a small percentage of all cases. A total of 129 people have died.

Here are some of the details:
