COVID-19 Update

Nevada observed a peak of new cases from January 3-13 and the highest single day was recorded on January 10. At this time, Clark County cases are declining, but transmission is still high. Washoe County is likely to be at or near its peak and it is anticipated that case trends in Washoe will start declining as soon as next week. Clark County appears to be stable since January 16 and still accounts for 85% of COVID-19 hospitalizations statewide. Staffing remains the main concern for hospitals, especially for hospitals in the southern part of the state and in rural communities.
