Daily Update- June 23, 2020 CCSD Reopening Plans, COVID-19 Numbers Spike

Clark County School District posted documents today that outline a possible plan for reopening schools for the coming school year. It proposes having students attend face-to-face two days a week, and online three days a week. There would also be an option for full-time distance learning. These options will be discussed at the Board of Trustees meeting on Thursday. The Clark County Education Association also released a list of demands related to reopening schools, including ensuring COVID-19 testing for all employees returning to work, as well as follow-up tests later in the year. The LVRJ has a further breakdown of the possible plan HERE.

Today marked the highest single-day increase in positive COVID-19 cases in both Nevada and Clark County. This is the fourth day of record-breaking jumps in the past week. There have been 462 positive cases reported in the past 24 hours according to DHHS. 412 of these cases are in Clark County. While cases increased, so did testing, with 5,703 tests conducted statewide in the last day. Nevada’s test positivity rate is up for the sixth day in a row, at 5.64 percent.

Governor Sisolak will be holding a press conference tomorrow evening to give an update on the Nevada response to COVID-19- we will have all the information for you in tomorrow’s G3WIRE.
