Nevada Reports 447 More Confirmed COVID-19 Cases, No Deaths
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada health officials report 447 new confirmed coronavirus cases but no additional deaths as of Sunday.
The statewide totals now stand at 68,908 cases and 1,302 deaths since the start of the pandemic.
Of the nearly 69,000 cases, the state Department of Health and Human Services says more than 56,000 were in Clark County.
They say confirmed cases reported daily has decreased since peaking above 1,400 on July 15.
It's a trend that officials attribute at least partially to Nevada's face-covering mandate and limits on large gatherings. But the number of tests reported has decreased week-by-week as well, from more than 49,000 in the third week in July to less than 27,000 last week.
