RENO, Nev. (AP) — The number of coronavirus hospitalizations in Nevada spiked to its highest since the start of the pandemic as an autumn surge continues to rewrite the state's record book.
Officials reported on Wednesday that 1,246 confirmed or suspected coronavirus patients were hospitalized in Nevada, more than twice as many as three weeks ago.
Gov. Steve Sisolak said he was still gathering information and planned to decide whether to implement new restrictions "very soon."
In Reno, the Renown Regional Medical Center has set up two floors of supplemental hospital beds in a parking structure adjacent to the hospital to accommodate the additional surge.
