Coronavirus cases reported at 20 Nevada nursing & assisted living facilities

LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Twenty assisted living and nursing facilities in Nevada have had reported cases of the coronavirus disease COVID-19 as of this week, according to state health officials.

The Division of Public and Behavioral Health said in a notice that it would release information about the facilities where they've found positive cases "in order to promote safety and an abundance of prevention and control":

"As suspect cases are identified and tested, the DPBH programs continue working with the facilities to implement strong infection control procedures involving higher levels of social distancing, separating those who are symptomatic from those who are not, environmental cleaning, and testing of those with high exposure to the case."

The number of cases will not be released due to the rapidly changing numbers, a health department spokesperson said in an email.
