LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Gov. Steve Sisolak will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. to give an update on the status of COVID-19 in Nevada.
Yesterday, Nevada reported 24 COVID-19 related deaths and nearly 1,000 additional cases in the previous 24-hour period. Most of the deaths, 23, were in Clark County where the test positivity rate rose to 16.5%.
Clark County and several other Nevada counties with high transmission rates began a mask mandate on July 30.
Clark County and Nevada have been labeled as places with high COVID-19 transmission for more than a month now, and continue to linger on the White House’s list of “areas of concern,” according to an updated report released Tuesday. The White House first labeled Clark County a “sustained hot spot” on July 5.
