Douglas County man is 59th COVID-19 death in area; 402 new cases, 232 from Stewart Conservation Camp
Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) is reporting an additional death due to COVID-19 in the Quad-County Region. The individual was a male Douglas County resident in his 80’s.
CCHHS is also reporting 402 new cases and 6 additional recoveries of COVID-19 in the Quad-County Region.
Of the new cases reported today, 232 are from the Stewart Conservation Camp. CCHHS has requested these individuals not be counted in the Quad-County numbers.
This request was sent to the Nevada COVID-19 Mitigation and Management Task Force and they indicated at the last meeting that there would be further discussion on this topic.
Until CCHHS receives the approval to remove the prison numbers from the Quad-County numbers, CCHHS is required to include them in the numbers. This brings the total number of cases to 6,420, with 3,086 recoveries and 59 deaths; 3,275 cases remain active.
Carson City Health and Human Services is working to identify close risk contacts to prevent further spread of the disease.
