As of Saturday, there are 154 positive COVID-19 cases in the state of Nevada and two deaths reported, according to Nevada’s Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 Dashboard.
Of the 2,602 people tested that statewide, 2,448 have had their tests come back negative.
Six of the confirmed cases are at Nellis Air Force Base.
State Epidemiologist Melissa Peek-Bullock released the following statement on the COVID-19 Dashboard:
“We have seen this week that more COVID-19 testing equals more positive cases and while it is frightening to see the case count increase, this information allows us to connect with patients and make sure they are being cared for and staying isolated from others. We encourage everyone to follow the advice to ‘Stay Home for Nevada,’ as that will help slow the spread in our communities.”
