LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada health officials have reported 391 new COVID-19 cases and 11 deaths.
The latest numbers reported Monday by the state bring the pandemic totals in Nevada to 288,739 known cases and 4,720 known deaths. The officials say Nevada's two-week positivity rate has been trending down since mid-January and has dropped to 12.8%.
Nevada began loosening some restrictions on Monday that Gov. Steve Sisolak put in place to stem a winter surge.
Restaurants, casino floors and gyms are now able to be 35% occupied, religious gatherings can be at 50% capacity, and public gatherings can involve 100 people or 35% capacity, whichever is less.
