RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada's rate of coronavirus infections is steadily rising again.
Gov. Steve Sisolak planned to provide an update of the status of COVID-19 statewide Tuesday afternoon.
The rate of infections has been increasing since he eased restrictions on public gatherings Oct. 1. State officials are reluctant to blame relaxed guidelines and don't advocate new restrictions at this time.
They point to rates increasing across the country and the world.
Nevada's 14-day rolling average for the positivity rate, which measures community transmission of the virus, began the week at 9.1% for the third consecutive day. It hadn't been as high as 9% since Sept. 4
